Experience of lockdown as a student has had its ups and downs. 

"Home is now my new studio, "My studio gets confined to a fixed space which paved the switch in my  art practice to a smaller scale. I realized that the lockdown helped me look at materials which went unnoticed earlier, materials that were discarded in everyday events. I started working with fabrics that were  already produced and discarded by people. I tried to observe the human psychology behind discarding fabrics and  started working on the reasons of, 'why do we discard something?'. A hole in the  cloth, threads coming out were some of the basic reasons. I  managed to collect those pieces and tried to maintain the raw look, the raw identity of such fabrics.  The interiors of studio space inspired me to look at geometry and the diverse patterns it offers to proceed with the visuals .My art practice moulded itself with the space and situation.

What are you going to take forward from this make-shift studio practice experience?

"Experimenting with the different materials and ideas in the lockdown helped me to think of substitute materials that was easily available in the nearby surroundings. Geometrical patterns and upcycled fabrics is a combination that I wish to work on in future."
