Haribaabu Naatesan

The Dark Side of The Sun by Haribaabu Naatesan

 

Haribaabu Naatesan urges us to think about what happens to discarded cell phones and out-of-date electronic items like walkmans and videotapes. So, the question is “What really happens to what we generally call scrap?” “Just because they have outlived their use, do they deserve to be forgotten in attics? Life is an unbroken cycle of creation and destruction, and this applies to human birth and rebirth as well. His work is a direct comment on what we have caused to nature as humankind. Are we able to create something beautiful and meaningful in our fast-paced lives, or we are simply here, invaders of this place, who destroy everything?

 

Artist Statement:

I see life in stillness and a beginning in every end. Whenever I see scrap materials, I see a soul waiting to come to life. I see science merging into art into design into spirituality and “I create”.
