Archaeological Dilettante: Deconstructing Vernaculars

Mix medium


Language always has been a deep concern in my work. It’s a medium that transforms our thinking and rationalizes our preliminary ideas into a structured form. I believe that every object has its own unique language, which is often overshadowed by the present paradigm dominant language.

Hence I extracted the visuals from wood, in prospect that it evokes some representation of known emotions or one that resides in our dictionary of language. It is surreal how history is impartially reserved in each of its bands. It opens for us new paradigms of understanding how the world we live and perceive is only a fraction of our consciousness mind. It’s up to us to unlock the potential from such stoic objects, which on surface doesn’t speak our language yet silently records, everything surrounding us and them.
