First conceived as a performance installation at the base of holy Mr Kailas, a spiral of small piles of turmeric are laid out in the desert as na offering to open the doors of wisdom and insight. The small piles are placed on the desert to remain until, particle by particl, they are dispersed to the four directions. The dispersion is intended to send a message of tolerance and wisdom to individuals in nations around the world who act out of selfishness, ignorance and prejudice. On the celng of a Berlin subway station, the points are fixed pixels on the surface, beneath, them the population of berlin moves like dust on the wind. Will they get the point? That their “mission� is to destroy obstacles in the way of fellow beings, to be open-minded and not be trapped in the stereotypical thinking? Turmeric spiral –OK – United States
