The work is concerned with my memories related to listening, understanding, recalling and speaking. A combination of prints, installation and stop-motion video, it reveals my wider understanding of the “inside” and “outside” of my personal world. During the lockdown, we were staying at home and after a certain point of time, we began to feel that we were trapped in the house like a caged animal or bird. As opposed to the feeling of being trapped, I looked at the challenging situation positively, allowing my thought and imagination to roam freely. The tiny house is recreated by the woodcuts of my unrestricted imagination.
