Community Enagagement Lead • BeFantastic • she/her

I am a media artist and storyteller currently based in Bangalore, India. I have an MA in Digital Direction from the Royal College of Art, London.

Coming from a multidisciplinary background, I situate my work at the intersection of art and technology. By interweaving the tactile with the virtual to tell stories, I seek to blur the boundaries between the real and the imagined. I explore the extent to which this can be expanded by experimenting with materiality along with interactivity.

My practice, greatly informed by Indian narrative structures, involves crafting interactive and immersive experiences that encourage one to pause and listen - if only for a brief moment. My recent works adopt non-binary, non-linear and decolonised approaches to reimagining, rewriting and retelling timeworn stories in novel ways.

Exploring the act of storytelling in an embodied manner is at present, the core of my investigation.

I approach my work with curiosity and play at the forefront so it is exciting to imagine where it would lead me to next.
