As a fine artists, I was always curios to see movements in my art works. This led me to experiment with video and animation. I drew concepts from my daily life encounters and visualised them as video artworks, mixing stop motion animation, video footage, illustration, miniature installations, poetry and more. With my background in theatre, using my body as a canvas to express my inner transformations became key to my independent art making practice. Later, to understand the structure of the video format better, I joined the Indian Film and Advertising Industry where I worked on various features films and television commercials.

VINTAGE

On a visit to an industrial factory, I found a sack of metal junk waiting to be discarded. I challenged myself to create something out of it. Shaping a block of wood into the form of a car and pasting tiny screws onto it, I designed a monster car. To house my car I designed a garage using the same materials. Out of joy, I designed a stop motion animation to see the car move.

CYBORG CARS FOR GUSTAAKH

Having enjoyed the process of creating a car using metal waste in my project Vintage, I designed futuristic cars using IT waste like resistors, batteries, capacitors, wire and circuit boards etc. These cars have been used in a stop motion animation music video for Gustaakh by the band The Local Train produced by Plexus Motion, Mumbai.

DEMONETIZATION

A digital stop-motion animation video depicting the situation when the Government of India announced the demonetization of all ₹500 and ₹1,000 banknotes, and it announced the issuance of new ₹500 and ₹2,000 banknotes. This overnight introduction of demonetization caused immediate inconveniences to the people. This video is aimed to generate awareness and inform about the situation and its long term benefits. The video uses images of the new currency and lotus that denotes goddess Laxmi who is believed to bring wealth and prosperity in the Indian traditions.

LIFE OF TEA

Inspired from a visit to a tea factory, Life of Tea is my first stop-motion animation which I created to explore my interest in the technique. The animation is set on a piece of paper designed using paper cut-outs and experimenting with different materials.
