Experiencing Interruptions?


"Devotion: love, loyalty, or enthusiasm for a person, activity, or cause."

There are two notions of devotion represented here: one that’s spiritual (expressed through my vocal rendition of Tirunalaipovar’s moving Carnatic composition + the action of lighting the oil lamp diyas), and one that’s vocational (the diffusion of ink pigments in water + the mixing of oil paints on a palette). Both representations are very methodic and laborious in how a person goes about achieving salvation or actualization, and the entire process requires unfaltering devotion: a devotion to faith and a devotion to craft.
