     The installation will feature pen and ink drawings, arranged in a circular form suspended from the ceiling.  Each of the drawings documents a moment in the artist’s connection to the known universe.  Sugden says, “Each page was an effort to explore and re-discover meaning in the imagery I have created over the years. Some are based on location drawings from travels to Nepal, Tibet, India, France, and other destinations. Based on literature and books that have influenced my artwork, the text includes the Dead Sea Scrolls, Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads, Buddhist scriptures, physics formulas, musical notations, etc. The languages include Devanagari Sanskrit, Peshitta, Aramaic, Greek, Tibetan, Vulcan, binary code, and others.”
