PERENNIAL MONOLITHS - National War Memorial
" One individual may die for an idea, but that idea will, after his death, incarnate itself in a thousand lives." - Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose
Independence through history has demanded sacrifice, and sometimes the Ultimate Sacrifice. Our nation has been built around the selfless sacrifices of our Armed Forces and there names shall never be forgotten. Thus not only creating a memory but also inspiring the next generation. This memorial pays tribute to our Fallen Heroes.
The project speculates about the generative role of the image in the creation of objects. It acknowledges potential qualities inherent to images, both perceived or withdrawn, coexisting in an unresolved tension within a framework of a speculative reality.
A series of rendering iterations of monolithic object assemblies are utilized to inform the project, producing a representational paradox in which both image and object coexist physically but in tension, resulting in a recursively eroding process and an even more indeterminate mass. Deliberately altered assembly conditions, through representation, drive predefined parts of the processed images to behave as entropic entities, hence portraying intricate misreading and conforming new vague wholes.
