Rohini Devasher on a research trip to Switzerland
Indian artist Rohini Devasher has trained as a painter and printmaker, and works in a variety of media including, video, prints and site-specific drawings. Her films, prints, sounds and drawings map the antagonism of time and space, walking the fine line between wonder and the uncanny, foregrounding the ‘strangeness’ of encountering, observing and recording both environment and experience.
This research project brings together Rohini’s interest in contemporary observational sciences, astronomy and atmospheric science (pursued at the Sphinx Observatory and Research Stations at Jungfraujoch), and early scientific observational instruments, specifically the cyanometer (pursued at the Musée d’histoire des sciences and the Bibliothèque de Genève). The visit will focus on observation and experience on one hand, and information and data on the other, each representing specific ways to try and understand the sky and our position relative to it.
