Different sign systems are one of the main interests in Adriana Lara’s productions. The work «Symbolic Surface Of Revolution» consists of five identically formatted, white painted canvases. The line of black dominoes that stretches across the individual pictures creates their connection. The title refers to both political events and the mathematical term «the surface of revolution», where the surface is generated within the graph of a function that can be rotated around the vertical axis of its coordinate system. In Lara’s representation, the mathematical term meets the sociopolitical meaning of the word revolution, which results in a new sign system to illustrate the social-revolution.
