The Fire Within | Interactive Art - Lamp, bottle, infrared sensors, LED, vibration motors

It was amazing how awe-struck I was by the fireflies, by its transient beauty and the hours spent looking for them, wanting to capture forever their magic in my mind. The exploration developed into an expression of how we try to contain thoughts and memories that exist in our minds, but escape us the more we want to catch them.
Breathing Bytes | Interactive Installation - Vellum screen, projector, proximity sensors, Processing sketch, acrylic heart

The project aims at bringing people together and establishing a connection between strangers. The screen creates an unbiased platform for communication and encourages people to reach out to each other. When two people approach the screen from opposite sides, red and blue rays (corresponding to each person) emanate from the position of the heart to form a warm and pulsating radiation.
Breathing Bytes | Digital Installation - Gateway Sheet white screen, Projector, Processing code
The project aims at bringing people together and establishing a connection between them irrespective of whether they are known to each other. The screen creates an unbiased platform for communication and encourages people to reach out to each other.

To-Fro-To | Projection - Charcoal, photo colors, projector, window

The existence of parallel instances of a given moment opens the doors for chance. Anything could happen. Within a given enclosed space, windows are our only points of entry/exit to the outer world. Using this opportunity, I invite the curious viewer to share a moment of wonder as a playful girl swings between visibility and invisibility that translates into a journey between existence and existence in another world.
You, Me and Rain | Interactive Art - Projection, Processing sketch, infrared and sonar sensor, umbrellas

The joy of running out to enjoy the rain is one of my fondest childhood memories. Using the essence of that experience, 'You, Me and Rain' rewards the coming together of two or more curious friends or strangers in the form of a downpour.
Work in Progress | Digital Installation - Study Table, Projector, Max MSP Patch
The installation consists of a video of me (topview) in my workspace which has been fragmented into five videos. Randomly, each fragment plays an individual video with a story of the object in that particular area of the table and me. Once played, the video goes back to being a part of the original video. The installation gives a peak into the intimate relation that I possess with particular objects in my workspace.
Can of Worms | Miniature Installation - Clay, glass inks, glass jar

Miniature installations at sites where I find these particular cracks, on my walks. Particularly taking up the story of me enjoying playing in the mud and the fascination with bugs as a kid. The installation involves a jar mistakenly left open after a painstaking collection of bugs. The bugs realizing that are in the process of making their escape into the crevices. The eye follows them and thus the cracks, looking for the next one subconsciously.
Transitions | Installation - Varying width and height glass/mirrored panels, fish cord

The idea began with the concept of social spaces and enhancing interaction amongst people we pass by each day in the corridors and do not stop to think about who they are. The mirror acts as a narcissistic space where we get caught in our own reflection oblivious of the world beyond it. A gradation of mirroring starts out with two strangers with their reflections that ends up with them looking ‘beyond’ at each other.

Civic-Lily - The project involved carrying out a civic duty through an attempt that exudes failed attempt. Lilypads were cut out of sponge and colored green using food dye. These were then carried around and were used to strategically adorn immense puddles that were hard to cross sans soggy toes. In a frog like attempt, one would step on the lilypad to cross to only end up squishing all the water right back out of the pad and refilling the puddle!

A Curious Contrast I Chanced Upon - As we are growing up, tons of questions baffle the mind to figure out a system and reason to our world. With time, this curiosity dies down and we get absorbed in the known. But what if we did not accept these standards? Would we notice a quiet disruption in our conditioned surroundings? I offer the potential seeker a quiet revolution in the form of a quirky moment of freedom and play that blurs the notion of time and place for as long as the viewer is enraptured.
