I am a photographer from Chandigarh, India. I grew up looking and living in this landmark city which was new to the Indian community and a geometrical balance for the society; a perfect Utopian and man's investigation with geometry and implementation of it as a landmark designed habitat. I grew up as a creative child questioning these perfect visual preferences. I use to gaze outside from my school building long distance green garden of trees merged with white walls continuity of that beautiful white bricks use to entice me. The form of Gandhi Bhawan was unreal for me. In some of my earlier work I have recognized less use of rounded shapes and less intricacy of motives or figures. Recognition of shapes forms and visual differences of place has always been seen in my style where I create a continuous conflict with light geometry and shapes and bring out creativity with visual understanding. I feel this work has a frenetic or dualistic interpretation which has chosen lines shapes and geometry as means of discussion and open to interpretation.
For this art practice my aim is to discuss an exploration of air mail envelopes and their means of reproduction to send out information with a unique identity of a nation.
Through heritage understanding of the layout of a city can have similarities creating a confusion of different areas and less intricacy can make you know less about inherent identity of a place. How substantial information can lead to new place or environment. A mail containing work permit, an approval in disparate sovereignty and the patterns meant to preserve information also shows identity of that particular place.
