While working as a photojournalist for Times of India I found my roots in listening to communities. Now through public art as social intervention, participatory urban projection and public installations I strive to connect community and place; embedded with personal process of finding home in the USA. I strongly believe in helping community initiatives utilize these instruments to creatively claim and transform public spaces. Often I use digital tools and physical collections to study locations around me and get inspired by it’s human history. As a transplant from India, I struggle to make home and often notice similar struggles among different demographics of Twin Cities. It drove me to create public art projects like Devices for Aerial Investigations (2012), Forward/50 (2013 onwards) and Take The Field (2014 onwards)where passersby can come together to make, relate and participate and create loops of the process overtime at multiple occasions.
