Self

Through the medium of print this work explores daily experiences of living life through the principles of a Hindu belief system. In Hindu religion the chakras are the seven energy points in the body that accumulate, assimilate and transmit psychological, physical and spiritual energies. Through studying the chakras this work documents life by means of a visual diary. This diary has evolved into a series of coloured prints of shifting shape and size that are in contrast to daily events. They are attempts to find a means of representing human energy.
