Schizoanalysis, as a concept, found currency with the Postermodernist turn, through the writings of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari.

Infestations of algorithms are put under the microscope in laboratory-like environments. Each act of unveiling manifests as reimaginations of technological architectures, their histories and futures, and thus, social paradigms. Worldbuilding and mythology come handy as speculative strategies and simulated solutions to capture the shifting categories of truth. The online residency was followed by a short residency at Khoj Studios for…
