Art is where “Work” meets “Love”! ~Unknown

As Henry David Thorean once said “This world is but a canvas to our imagination.” I believe that art is definitely a key to the artist’s and the onlooker’s imagination. To experience this imagination and the mind power or game, my friend Akshay and I visited the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) in Sydney. Opened in the year 1991, the museum is the collection of contemporary Australian art.

This post is dedicated to all the photographs that I took when I visited this beautiful museum.

  • Automated Colour Field, 2011

Automated Colour Field, 2011. Source: MCA Automated Colour Field is a kinetic sculpture consisting of a wall-mounted grid of 100 flip-clocks, the numbered panels of which have been replaced by paper cards in a variety of colours. The battery-operated clocks keep their own time, turning the paper cards on the minute and the hour to create a kaleidoscopic field of colour. As in many of Baumann’s works, the mechanisms used to activate her chosen materials, and the incidental noises these mechanisms generate, are an important element of the experience she creates. In this work the analogue clocks activate the paper cards, producing a low background hum and soft pattering sound like raindrops falling on a tin roof. Baumann is interested in how we subjectively perceive colour and time, and how these phenomena are scientifically visualised and measured. Her main focus is the intimate relationship between colour and emotion, and the way specific colours and colour combinations can elicit particular feelings or moods. Bringing time into this equation, Baumann links the continually changing arrangements of colour generated by the flip-clocks to the fluctuating spectrum of emotions people experience over any 24-hour period. . . #raksaustraliadiaries #rakssydneydiaries #solopassport #indiantravelers #indiangirls #womentravellers #followforlike #desigirltravels #igers #travelphotography #ig_world #worldtravelgram #womentravelers #worldshotz #wanderlust #worldtravel #gtgi #instagood #instatravel #dreamdestinations #destinations #instadestinations #shutterbugs #igramming #photooftheday #picoftheday #instapic #instalikesapp #art #artporn

The Moir sisters. The Moir Sisters was an Australian pop vocal trio from the mid-1970s. Their big hit, "Good Morning (How Are You?)'"
