"If you take someone and put them on a different planet — we are 50 years away from manned expeditions on Mars; it's not too far away — you realize it equalizes our ethnographic differences," Prabha says. "The Night Lands looks at geology, time, consciousness, and how they all interplay in our daily lives. The idea is to feel like you are on an archaeological survey on some planet somewhere." His installation will be shown at 3900 N. Miami Ave., in Miami's Design District. News article 2. 10 Broward Visual Artists You Need to Know, by Andrea Richard, Broward Palm Beach New Times http://www.browardpalmbeach.com/arts/ten-broward-visual-artists-you-need-to-know-7590313 Excerpt A trippy journey to the cosmos is what viewers can experience when exploring one of Sri Prabha's mixed-media installations. The Indian-born, Seattle Cornish College of the Arts educated artist, knows how to playfully introduce scientific discoveries into art making. His works, nearly fantastical in nature, explore his deepest thoughts and questions about the nature of humanity. He integrates subjects often not seen around the South Florida art-sphere, such as geology, nature, time, and human origins, into his work. A walk around his large-scale installations features a dash of sensory overload through his use of experimental sounds and abstract video projections juxtaposed with sculpture, paintings, and prints. Onlookers can take it all in, in a meditative state as the artist intended, or stargaze while enjoying a geological time exploration before heading off into another orbit.
