An entirely experimental show based on interaction with the particular space and the audience. This was done using various mediums such as body, sound and light. Ultimately we saw how the meaning of a space changes in relation to particular objects and how the space changes the meaning of those objects. Our interaction with space revealed in the broader context how we interact in life.

Co-curated and exhibited in a group show “Nuts?! Yes Nuts!” at the School of Performing Arts & Creative Education (SPACE). Delhi, 2003. In this show, as a generation of upcoming artists we questioned the notion of artists being thought and considered as “Nuts” ( crazy) and then drew similarities and made comparisons between being crazy nuts and the ground nuts that grow in a shell and ultimately make a break through in the world. For the show, we covered the entire ground space of the gallery with NUTS !!!
