Lasercut Acryllic Obelisk
2018



This obelisk of light tells an encrypted story about humanity, simultaneously referring back to the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs of old and using a conspicuously familiar type-font named Wingdings. In it are hidden stories that unfolded within the contemporary age, but being without translation they are left to the audience to decipher. Precisely in the spirit of the age-old hieroglyhps of Egypt.
