This conceptual installation art, titled SAKAL, is an invitation to critical thinking: how does text (whether language, images, or objects) generate meaning? The installation is also an invitation for self-reflection on the process of meaning-making. How do we comprehend or attribute meaning? Is it in relation to our personal histories? Can there be a universal or natural meaning?
