An Arctic Time Signature
Upon Arctic rock a moving figure ignites a grey and remote environment. Progressively, duplicated bodies trace over this slow ancient terrain drawing forth a playground anchored by touch, bringing the mind closer to the earth, to time itself.
The echoing selves’ cross paths, scramble, sit and contemplate with play and exploration; together resembling a chaotic scattered mind, slipping between rumination and persistent thought. Upon reflection, the landscape reminds us that we are alone, traveling on the backs of our self-created narratives – distracted from deep solitude and solace in the suspended unknown.
In 2015 An Arctic Time Signature was selected as a Finalist in the Macquarie Digital Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery in the ACT, and in 2016 for the Nillumbik Art Prize exhibiting at Montsalvat in Victotia. Devika was also a finalist for the Bowness Photography Prize at the Monash Gallery of Art in 2015.
