Mayur, which means “peacock” in Sanskrit, is a visual-music work inspired by Asian cosmologies, music and textiles. It is a motion painting created by digital animation featuring complex images that evolve from threads to roots and intricate vines, forming lace-like 2 and 3 dimensional structures, tiles, and living textiles in the luminous colours of a peacock.

The animation is by Vibeke Sorensen and the music is by sitar virtuoso Kartik Seshadri.

This work looks for the liking spatial patterns.


Mayur was premiered at the Cinegrid 2015 conference at CalIT2/University of California, San Diego, USA.
