Charon. Mixed technics on canvas 45 x 45 cm by Shaharee Vyaas (2023). Collection Civilization and Cosmos part 12

The demagogue arrived as their friend
he would restore their honor
make them feel proud
protect their house
give them a job
clean up the neighborhood
remind him of how great mythopoeia once was
clear out the venal and the corrupt
remove anything. They felt was unlike them.
He did not walk in saying
my program means malicious Mass imprisonment
transportations, war and persecution.

a new president emerged overnight
when Mythopia suffered pains of slight
. He ordered his powerful navy
to challenge dystopias Contamay
and expected an easy victory.
How could he forget his country’s lesson?
Dystopian to fend of foreign devils
Fight fiercer than a raging demon.
They shot Mythopia’s fleet to shambles
an all the president’s screaming and all the President’s men
could not put Mythopia’s navy together again.

The Hollow Men by TS Eliot

Mythopia´s president had crossed
With direct eyes, to death’s other Kingdom.
And Mythopia´s civilization went with him.
This was now the dead land
This was now cactus land
there the stone images
were raised, there they received
The supplication of a dead man’s hand
They were the hollow men
They were the stuffed men
Leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
Their dried voices, when
They whisper together
Were quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
Or rats’ feet over broken glass, in their dry cellar

My latest project concerns itself with a multimedia installation that consists of a rotating rhombicuboctahedron that is suspended in a magnetic field. The twelve square faces of the rhombicuboctahedron are carrying an image that represents the mythological aspects of the main celestial bodies that make our planetary system. While the installation makes every two minutes a turn to bring another planet in focus, a melody is played that consists of a classical music tune that is derived from the electromagnetic waves emitted by this particular celestial body mixed with a poem that refers to a specific phase that occurs in every civilization cycle with a reference to the classic European mythology that backs it up. The installation measures about 3 meters over 3 meter. The concept of this installation is founded upon the idea of how the cyclical nature of a multitude of phenomena mirrors circulatory cosmological and biological patterns
