To Inhabit, With Care
conversation series by School of Environment and Architecture, Mumbai, India, 2023.
Breathing on sewage infrastructures while listening, writing, and working; sinking inside the historical wastewater and its belief mechanism developing under the smart cities; this talk constructs a counter narrative of ecological and care politics via a thickening of the outcaste, toxic substances, and the unarrivable.
Pig sustaining on waste infrastructure and sewage lines coming out into the cities and uttering the voice that articulates something crucial. Noise that transplants our organs (pigs is suitable animal for human organ) as well as our possibility to imagine the concepts of toxicity, contaminations and inhabitants.

The immersing process in the underground site comes up with sets of actions, post-actions, sounds, and drawings.
Text, Conversation, and Circulation of Images
Studio Jangpura, Delhi, India, 2023.
Receiving imagery of violence on our phones becomes a regular activity of life, leading to violence as the new normal. The political subtext of this project is also a critique of the way ruling dispensations make use of ‘clickworkers’ who are employed as trolls. The accelerated dissemination of violent imagery is often channeled through these ‘clickworkers’ as a means to legitimise power and terrorise dissenting voices.
