Melawin Rai
Vortex Strategem
Rai’s work is an intimate study of space,light and scale. In our contemporary digital condition, where virtual and actual are almost interchangeable, this work reminds us that the photograph has forever been fugitive testimony. Employing very simple household materials,such as recycled cardboard and plastic, plain flour and milk powder, and then lighting them with a handheld torch, these realistic landscape simulations call into question our relationship with the ‘real’.
