“Ma” is easily the most meaningful project I have ever worked on. It is an homage to my mother, a classical south asian dancer, whose movements have slowed down through the process of aging. As my thesis project in Grad school, I created a video installation where a visitor walks through hallways made of sarees, the garment she wore to dance in, and encounters the silhouette of a young energetic dancer transforming into a slower one through the layers of the installation. The shadows created by the visitor are also layered into the work, mirroring the projected shadows from the videos. To better understand this experience, you can view a walk of the installation through in my video section.
