Hooked to Virtual Hallucination….

I combine a narrative mode with naturalistic charm and a sense of melancholy which evokes
ambiences reminiscent of my native place and surroundings in a society.
I like to play around with popular imageries that conditions oneself making him think the
external voice is authentic rather than self-appropriations.
The virtual hallucinations idea arrived in my journey from baroda station to KHOJ studio.
Every body has a desire to view oneself as an example set by the world around him/her. Right
from once physicality, psychological character, capacities we tend to leave it at the hands of
others to determine.
I have attempted to bring forth the concept of creating a visual recreation of a purely internal
experience-seduction through my work.
The mirror which contains your reflection mimics the message of the stereo typical weighing
machine that has nothing to do with your truest being but at the same time you can see the
reflections of yourself imposed on such an imagery.
“A man’s true wealth is the good he does in the world. Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a
mirror. But you are eternity and you are the mirror.” – Kahlil Gibran
