Technology, trash and urbanscape – these three elements (or rather ‘products’ of modern-day advancement) are the crucial pillars of artist Robin Tarbet’s incredible installation “A Temporary State To Fall Or Rise Again”. In allusion to these contemporary avenues, the sculptural metropolis comprises of circuit boards stacked atop each other to replicate the utilitarian structures of high-rises and apartments in big cities.

The circuits boards are arranged and connected with the help of spacers. Only the identical boards are used for the stacking, which sort of hints at their meta levels of organization and function inside working computer units. And for those boards that do not match, the components are laid out in an horizontal manner on the floor to start out a new ‘building’. The variant heights of these circuit board stacks aptly mimic the skyline of modern cities – thus endowing the audience with an intangible sense of familiarity.

The in-room sculptural metropolis was exhibited as a part of the ‘Cities Of Ash’ series till 13th September, at the g39.
