‘Kenosis (2015) is a journey into nothingness, with a derivation from the Greek word “kenoo”, which means to empty. The heart, the most important organ in the body and the first to develop in a fetus as a sign of life, is the center of Kenosis. Intervening technology with belief, Kurulkar found 3D printing to be a method that could dissect and analyse components that make us mortal. She worked with this technology to acquire a life-size terracotta model for her own heart. The terracotta heart was then submerged in water and an image was captured at regular intervals of disintegration. This led to a documented journey of the heart into nothingness in a series of fifteen selected image of framed time.’- excerpted from the article.
