Methods and Practice
Fictional Provocations are a series of drawings which question the logic of drawing beyond space alone. It tries to contemplate the daily and abstract experience to further inspect the observations to be able to communicate through composition.

Engagement with the under-represented
Ever thought about the emotions a trans-gender would be going through while entering a public restroom? 'His/Her' any restroom, the eyes are always on them. The emotional struggles one faces throughout their journey of coming out in open gets worst when it comes to the use of Public Spaces with gender-specific identities. 'ONE' departs from the social debates revolving around the non-binary community and their access to public toilets. This proposal takes into consideration the urgent need of designing safe, sustainable and inclusive restrooms for all genders, religion, races and disables. It aims at taking the first step towards bringing a change in the society and allowing people to contemplate on the issues the non-binary community faces.
‘CONFERENCES’ AND THE ‘GENDER’ QUESTION
The project is an attempt to focus on the on-going debate concerning gender studies in India in the past couple of decades – the question of gender representation in conferences and focusing specifically on the rise and shortcomings of inclusivity in women-centric conferences.
Hegemony is based on Alias Grace, the grisly double murder that took place in July 1843 in a village, in Upper Canada. A dominant question of Victorian times was whether women were, by nature, good or evil. Hegemony takes up this question, arguing that this binary is not a sufficient way to understand women, just as it would be an insufficient way to understand men. Hegemony further takes the argument a step further by showing how society’s repression of female sexuality—and its willingness to allow, and even condone, sexual violence against women—cements this binary understanding of womanhood and negatively affects women’s self-expression by tying their worth to their sexuality.
