City: Janus Faced
‘Elevated Utopias’ (2014 - 2018)
‘Elevated Utopias’ centers around the anxieties of societies in the face of anarchy, globalization and development. Seeming development and political anarchy connects together in strange ways, and create anesthetizing moods of utopias. Inculcating ‘passivity’ and navigating ‘content’ towards illusions of grandiosity, citizenry remain in a state of denying reality through skewed justifications. The past, present and future get imprisoned in this unreal reality.
