A Myth, a Lie and a Day that Never Arrived
Environmental issues have always been one of my personal and core artistic concerns given that I was raised in a tropical island far away from the urban chaos, but fate has brought me to live in New Delhi. What we Delhiites are going through on a daily basis from population explosion, endless traffic jams, soaring temperatures, smog as well as severe air and water pollution deeply concerns me from the primal motive of survival.
'A Myth, a Lie and a Day that Never Arrived', a work-in-progress, is my artistic effort at narrating the story of what's happening to us by situating our story in future. Rather than getting entangled with the present narrative (given the fantastic work being done on it by many filmamkers and photographers), this series is a constructed approach towards portraying what me might lose in the years to come and how we might have to live if we do not undertake immediate and urgent course corrections. Started as an intutitive aesthetic response, I began working on this series in 2016 and hope to complete it soon.
