I often get inspired by artists and this piece of art, "Intersections", is utterly mesmerising.
It is created by Anila Quayyum Agha from Indianapolis, who recently was named the double winner of Grand Rapids Art Prize 2014 with "Intersections". The art installation mirrors the geometrical patterns present in Islamic sacred spaces and is derived from the artists own experiences, growing up in Pakistan. The wooden frieze emulates a pattern with reference to those found in Alhambra in Grenada, Spain. Alhambra was poised at the intersection of history, culture and art and was a place where Islamic and western discourses, met and co-existed in harmony, something that has inspired the artist. Within the laser-cut wooden cube, a single light bulb enables the entire room to become flooded with the beautiful design.
