Sahana’s work is part of a series where letters of Brahmi script are being deconstructed into geometric shapes to understand the evolution of human conscious intellect over time. This understanding of construction, allows her to construct a linguistic space of her own. ‘A,’ being the first sound, is considered the primordial letter. ‘A,’ is a work that is reconstructed using three basic geometric approaches of construction i.e. circle, square and triangle. The bases of geometry are used as tools to examine the spaces that exist within the alphabet. The combination of these interpretations is placed together in the same given space as a mandala. The parallel lines with the symbolism of Agni mandala also connote the nature of this linguistic architecture. The six points that make this alphabet is interpreted to be the outline, for the construction of the rest of the letters in the Brahmi script.
