Before the Sun

Karthik Pandian

Walking into the Midway Contemporary Art Gallery, you would assume it was closed, that is, however, how Pandian's exhibit is set up. In the center of the room is a large stepped platform on which two building-like structures made of mirrors stand. The platform is made of dirt and shells and the mirrors are filled with it as well. The dirt in the mirrors holds up the projectors. The projectors are pointing at the corners, and playing film of the sun on a loop. It is immediately overwhelming, but after you get used to the dark, and the loud noises, it begins to make sense. The noise throughout the room was overwhelming, and hard to comprehend what exactly you are listening to, but knowing more about the subject, helps to shed light on the subject.
