TrA: Installation by Jose di Gregorio
An installation combining mandala lines with the small constellation Triangulum Australe (TrA) in the southern sky. The design uses the principles of the Net of Indra which stretches out infinitely in all directions and is associated with the motionless timeless center of the universe.
Romanticizing how impossibly far and esoteric the three stars that make up the constellation are, I held my daughters’ hands. Our worries, problems, the color of our skin, how much we own; the details of our lives mean nothing in the universe. If we were to leave earth we would mean nothing. It’s only through our interactions, whether they be negative or positive, with each other that we truly exist.
