SHRINES at PiRats Art Network

SHRINES is a multi-sensual installation created by Asmita Duranjaya for an exhibition at the inworld art gallery PiRats in March 2011. Eight walkable shrines show each one animated artwork accompanied by a short sound-collage. The author Miriam Evanier has created a haiku for every artwork. This is read for the visitor when he clicks on a book. The book can be bought. It includes the artwork and the haiku. Available is also a book-display including and showing all the artwork plus the haiku on touch.

Explanation on "haiku" by Miriam Evanier: Haiku form originated as a section of Japanese linking poems and now is loosely interpreted in countless other languages, usually with hinged imagery and usually as three lines alternating units of 5-7-5. In English, that unit is the syllable.
The opening for this one month exhibition is on the 15th of March at 1pm SLT. See you there!
