Before there was anything.

Its all Aum.

It will probably come us no surprise to most people who know me, that I have an interest in all things Indian.

Sometime ago I was commissioned to make the Hindu symbol Aum (Om).  I thought there  was only one flavour but in fact there are several.

The one depicted above is the Tamil Aum.  I’ve designed it so that the symbol emerges out of the chaos.

On closer inspection however, you find that it’s all Aum.

Before there was anything there was only AUM.

The original installation is four separate panels in a vertical line.  It is hung right next to the front door.  It’s the last thing the householders see as they leave their home.

Quite auspicious actually.
