Using his personal thoughts and experiences about the Internet, artist Arun Pandit has come up with his new series of sculptures. His exhibition titled ‘Error 404’, creates images that relate to the frustrations and experiences when he faces the term Error 404 on his computer screen.

“For me the internet experience is a kind of disorientation. It is like a closed question,” says Arun. “This disorientation in the form of sculpture is an invitation to the viewer and to take them to a level of curiosity like never before,” he says.

Since Pandit’s work is about analysis, he believes his work should be collectively analysed. Whether it is the couple reading the newspaper or the mirrored bull, he wants all the aspects that he is juxtaposing to be pushed against each other at once and as a unit. “I am not interested in taking things apart. I am interested in what happens when they stay
together.”

His work is also a reflection of his fascination for questions and answers. “I am always interested in questions that I cannot answer. I don’t even want to answer them. But it is the tension that is generated in the questions that becomes the subject of my creation and frustration. Tension is the tool I have experienced after frisson and the friction between self and the mind,” he says.
Looking at his works it also seems as if Pandit wants to take that even a step further. “In today’s world there are a lot of artists who want to pose a question that can’t be fully answered, at least within a language. Therefore the sculpture Bull–done with error has been used as an apt example,” says Arun.
