Mount Mehru is conceived as a place of spiritual pilgrimage. It is a representation of the cosmos at the macrocosmic level and of the human body at the microcosmic level (each of the circuits correspond to a chakra of the body).
The Sri Yantra is a tool to give a vision of the totality of existence, so that the adept may internalize its symbols for the ultimate realization of his unity with the cosmos. The goal of contemplating the Sri Yantra is that the adept can rediscover his primordial sources. The circuits symbolically indicate the successive phases in the process of becoming.
This personal vision of Mount Mehru displays layers of the universe. Viewers are invited to get intimate with the object, imagine and explore...
Man and Nature
Reminiscent of the universal Pestle, this object is meant to be held as a tool in order to feel the interaction between stone and metal, nature and man. Visually and tactually the two materials push and pull around each other creating complex moments laced with meaning in a simple object. Raw alabaster morphs into smooth waves that both hug and fight the bronze inlay, keeping it in place purely by tension.
Sunrise on the Ocean
A eulogy to the sacred moments when the sun touches the horizon.
Into the Earth
Each bowl is treated differently both inside and out to represent humanity's interference with different layers of our planet.
