This new body of work (in progress) is inspired by the Rangoli performances and design work that I do.
Although I have been teaching and performing Rangoli for several years, it is only recently that I have stopped to think about the relationship I have with it and what it means to me.
Close to my workspace, I keep a tiny gridded sketchpad. When I find a space in my day, I jot down a design of what I am thinking using pencil, ruler, and compass. It is in a sense – a doodle of a moment, in a space, in time.
And this is what Rangoli means to me. It is about capturing the essence of a moment. A record of a gap and the spaces that surround that gap.
These are just a few examples of my explorations. I’ll be adding more images so please check back.
