Resembling microscopic patterns existent in nature, Parul Thackers filigree works seem like magnified webs, a natural beauty which is made visible for the viewer. The Indian artist uses thread to create her web-like complex structures, thereby combining and intertwining both technology and nature. Technology and nature seem to stand in contrast to each other. If you look closely, however, where is the defining line between a cobweb and a web of information? Webs are built of material objects as well as of symbolic objects and inevitably result in concrete objects themselves, if not in abstract constructions of systemic correlations. Webs and networks do not follow specific definitions, they come into existence once individual units like bacteria, ants, spiders, neighbourhoods, hydraulic engineers, computer scientists or governments come together. Thackerís works are conscious of the systematics of the web: only what is linked-up is productive and capable of surviving, let it be nature, society, or anything else between protozoon and computer.
