Light installation

Sculptor: Nasir Ansari
Materials: Blue LED lights, lotus bulbs
Dimensions: 2-4 feet high

This light installation is inspired by the lotuses that grow on the way to Keenjhar Lake from where Karachi gets its water supply. It was here that a prince of Sindh fell in love with a fisherwoman called Noori in what became a famous romantic tale immortalized by Sufi poet Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai. This site-specific intervention uses the pond or talaab at Frere Hall gardens
