Tricky Walsh: Flatland

‘Flatland’ by Tricky Walsh presents an exploration of the universe in vivacious colour and geometric configurations.

We see our world in flat images arranged on continually shifting planes, while light and its movement enables us to perceive three-dimensionality and space and our movement through it conjures the fourth dimension – time. Based on recent scientific findings and with reference to the 1884 novel ‘Flatland’ by Edwin A. Abbott, Walsh queries the notion of space and light as the next discoverable dimension.
