Born in 1978, Rohini Devasher lives and works in New Delhi. She received her MA in Printmaking from Winchester School of Art in the UK and her BFA from the College of Art in New Delhi. Her work has been exhibited widely in India and abroad.
Devasher’s artistic practice explores the interface between the underlying laws and processes, which govern growth and form in biological and physical systems and their mirroring in the digital domain. Standing at the threshold of art, science and fiction, her forms pulsate with primordial life, while simultaneously being precursors to a futuristic space. Her current work involves research and fieldwork in astronomy, a significant part of which will be developed at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin
this year. Part of the research for Shadow Walkers was undertaken during the Sarai Associate Fellowship, City-as-Studio – an initiative of the Sarai Programme at CSDS, Delhi between February and November 2010.
