I use easily recognizable signs, symbols and forms and juxtapose them in a dichotomous manner to raise these questions.
How the surface and form are treated play an important role in this investigation. Cutting the surface and form is not just a physical manifestation of the urge to look beyond but also a means to subvert the sign, symbol or form.
This surface manipulation creates an optical illusion by making only part of the image visible from a particular angle, and animating the surface of clay. Thus challenging the way we see things and events in our world.
