This​ ​installation​ ​is​ ​an​ ​attempt​ ​to​ ​explore​ ​the​ ​idea​ ​of​ ​sub-consciousness​ ​being​ ​a​ ​singular​ ​entity​ ​and​ ​its existence​ ​scattered​ ​as​ ​projections​ ​in​ ​every​ ​plane.​ ​These​ ​entities​ ​are​ ​linked​ ​with​ ​a​ ​network​ ​of​ ​planes​ ​and come​ ​in​ ​contact​ ​with​ ​each​ ​other​ ​with​ ​Energy​ ​that​ ​gives​ ​them​ ​a​ ​reason​ ​for​ ​contact​ ​and​ ​a​ ​purpose.​ ​The essence​ ​of​ ​individuality​ ​can​ ​be​ ​preserved​ ​even​ ​when​ ​these​ ​entities​ ​form​ ​a​ ​collective.  
 

The​ ​sphere​ ​is​ ​the​ ​only​ ​embedded​ ​surface​ ​that​ ​lacks​ ​boundary​ ​or​ ​singularity​ ​with​ ​constant​ ​mean​ ​curve. Existence​ ​of​ ​a​ ​sphere​ ​in​ ​a​ ​form​ ​of​ ​infinite​ ​physical​ ​projections​ ​of​ ​itself​ ​eliminates​ ​the​ ​quality​ ​of​ ​uniqueness when​ ​observed​ ​together​ ​in​ ​a​ ​physical​ ​plane.​ ​When​ ​an​ ​external​ ​energy​ ​is​ ​exposed​ ​to​ ​these​ ​particles​ ​it immediately​ ​shifts​ ​its​ ​state​ ​of​ ​being​ ​on​ ​its​ ​plane,​ ​now​ ​the​ ​differences​ ​in​ ​the​ ​particles​ ​can​ ​be​ ​observed​ ​with the​ ​intensity​ ​of​ ​its​ ​reaction​ ​towards​ ​the​ ​certain​ ​energy​ ​as​ ​its​ ​situation​ ​of​ ​existence​ ​on​ ​the​ ​plane​ ​differs. This​ ​way​ ​each​ ​particle​ ​achieves​ ​a​ ​singularity​ ​amongst​ ​itself.

 

The​ ​installation​ ​consists​ ​of​ ​minute​ ​metal​ ​spheres​ ​contained​ ​in​ ​a​ ​stainless​ ​steel​ ​plate​ ​which​ ​is​ ​exposed​ ​to a​ ​magnetic​ ​field​ ​placed​ ​below​ ​its​ ​surface​ ​which​ ​channelizes​ ​energy​ ​and​ ​pressure​ ​leading​ ​to​ ​a​ ​process​ ​of a​ ​form.​ ​The​ ​magnets​ ​are​ ​assisted​ ​with​ ​a​ ​mechanical​ ​DC​ ​motor​ ​to​ ​produce​ ​a​ ​varying​ ​magnetic​ ​field throughout​ ​the​ ​plate​ ​which​ ​in​ ​turn​ ​influences​ ​the​ ​forms​ ​produced.​ ​Varying​ ​magnetic​ ​field​ ​results​ ​in​ ​a kinetic​ ​movement​ ​throughout​ ​the​ ​form.
