People. Origin. Places submerges in the depths of originality outlined by an abstract method that circles around the clock of human origin, beliefs, customs strictly stitched to a threshold defined by boundaries, and laid in the context of the present scenario of the world not mere in oblivion. The works displayed in the exhibition presents a meaningful and definite insight to ideas revolving around ethical, political, social and religious concerns.

About the installations:
The installations titled URBAN SHADOW 1 & 2 are metaphors of society, space and human cultural amalgamation. The attempt is to portray the infrastructural space that underlines the aspect of social space including artificial edifices showing the changing society. URBAN SHADOW 1 reflects human settlement and the success of public spaces that defines the development of the human race migrating from prehistoric and rooted now in the post modern production of space. URBAN SHADOW 2 is a representation of the civilizational change including customs and lifestyles. It showcases the shared resources in which experiences and values are created providing a feel good buzz where people indulge themselves in learning awareness of diversities as well helps create local attachments that are heart of a sense of community.
