Tara Mechani is a figurative sculptural installation that fuses representational aspects of the female Buddha, Tara, with future characteristics of the female robot in a contemporary way.
The idea is to create a “being” that encompasses both the past and the future, melding worlds of ancient wisdom ideology and philosophy with future mechanics and technology.
Its interaction and expression urge viewers to contemplate the other-worldly union of these two compelling and guiding forces usually at opposition now intertwined.
