Capital Formation, Projections is a series of sixteen images that capture the action of projecting text in public spaces in New Delhi, India. The text, performance and video works in the Capital Formation series were conceived in collaboration with artist Cat Bluemke. The works question the creation of hierarchy through architecture as symbols that connote power, methods of contemporary empire-formation by the state, reliance on neo-colonial systems that pervade our daily lives and experience of the city through technology under the aegis of globalization. Through text and images, the projection work relates the many concerns of my practice back to my home town. The gorilla graffiti act of writing with light, albeit transient, is here encapsulated through photography.
