Inspired by the metaphysical glass bead game from Hermann Hesse’s novel, this work seeks to represent a cosmic harmony, a working beyond our understanding. An arrangement of abstractions and rules (represented by the spheres), and a guiding principle/locus (represented by the moon).
Anirudh has a PhD in Mathematics (2014-2018) and a MSc. Gravity, Particles and Fields (2012-2015) from the University of Nottingham. While there, he was the recipient of the Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship for Research Excellence and the Developing Solutions Scholarship. He has been featured in the New Journal of Physics for two consecutive years, 2016-2017. He has earlier worked with APL Global, a Cambridge board school in Chennai to develop, design and formulate science projects that encourage semi-independent investigations by school children. His surreal work in the digital medium is about an internal environment and personal discovery, which is heavily influenced by his interest in Indian philosophy, and elements of home – the moon often symbolizing this influence. He currently lives and works in Chennai.
