CASUAL THOUGHTS OF DOOM
Casual Thoughts of Doom is a series of drawings, videos, and installations depicting imagined artifacts of our civilization, unearthed in the future, perhaps as clues to our descent. These 'artifacts' juxtapose and distort contrasting motifs of time, space, and human presence/absence – symbolisms in a constant flux of senses and states we experience in everyday life. This work draws equally from archaeological studies of ancient civilizations as from the gentrification of Indian cities and narrow lanes of Mumbai. Sensationalist media, modern eugenics, neofascist movements, and recurring environmental disasters shape these retroactive excavations of human and human-made abstractions
