Vacuum Suction (2015)

Screenshot of a Facebook post done as a part of the "Vacuum Suction" project by Prayas Abhinav at KNMA

[Project] A project on the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art (KNMA)’s Facebook page. A script that can deny its own existence easily is possible. The continuity can be said to exist only in the minds who engage over time and let their mind be influenced and subjected to. It does not exist in any discernible form otherwise. The script exists in the audience’s mind only. The audience can become a part of the production anytime. Link: View

Participation in Shadow Search Project (2009)

The Shadow Search Open Call, organised by

Web Curation (2013)

[at Arts & Humanities, CEPT University] Web Curation is an emerging practice of engaging with web based content in a way that attempts to listen to voices in the pool of noise that the web has become. Seeking out content from this pool of noise means to understand the context from which the content emerges and design strategies around that context. If expression is a sign of a trigger, then unfiltered, untapped content can be accessed most easily and abundantly on the web. It then becomes the responsibility of other co-inhabitants of the eco-system to be able to design flows and channels that tender this expressive content in a navigable form for audiences. The curator, literally the one who cures, is not the gate-keeper in the context of the web, but is the agent who can create envelopes of meaning and frames of enhanced signification and audience. This process will be outlined in the one week workshop.
