Marat Mahākāla

This project is a result of a collaboration between Andrew Cornell Robinson and Michael Kirk with help from students of Parsons and Cooper Union. This project is part of a new series I am engaging in, which includes individual and multidisciplinary collaborations mediated through a persona narrative. This print installation started with a discussion between my friend Michael Kirk about two photographs I made exploring the life and ethos of the French revolutionary Jean Paul Marat. further discussions led to a meditation on Mahākāla a protective figure in Buddhism. The idea emerged to combine the two ideas through the layered images of over twelve different silk screens.
