I am particularly interested in the oscillation between the official vs biographical voice. This unique concepts such as integrating a more personal voice to the often official work of art. This project has granted me a chance to assess the effectiveness of rubber stamps on “official vs. biographical” platforms. The ideas that have arisen from my experiments can be integrated with future projects. For instance, most of the existing stamps are given an official purpose.

I was particularly interested in aroma and smells and how we associate these smells with our memory.when we encounter particular familiar smell the associated incident triggers,for instance when I smell turmeric I think of my grandmother,it also remind me of the my beautiful dress which stained. I have modified some of the Indian and the British embroidery motifs,and have created stencils out of those patterns.These individual designs were carefully stenciled using range of spices to make it look like a carpet.

I think overall my project and exhibition went successfully.I am pleased with the range of work I have produced,although I would have spent more time on certain pieces rather than others. After making some alteration ,These are just a few photos so that one can get a general idea of the atmospheric content of my installations and how it looks when all the elements like mixed media piece,jars with spices,toran,sitting arrangements dress,come together
