The snake is a formless being// the hills don't move

Indian muslin, internal supports

This form is a scaled-down recreation of a pair of hills at 24°03’00”N 73°51’00”E which was made using GIS mapping software. Hills are seen as features that never change; they are supposed to be fixed in their form and existing before culture. My work questions this and brings forth the idea that the natural environment is a social construction and hence always fleeting. This is explored through mapmaking, a social process that shapes our interaction with physical space.
