    Travel becomes a starting point in Frame Story, which includes several works from a collaboration with Nirmal Raja. Walking the streets of Mumbai, Berlin, Hong Kong, Seoul or Buenos Aires, we often find ourselves in unfamiliar environments that provoke us to question our understanding of the world. Whether it is the opacity of a script we cannot read, the sounds of a language we cannot comprehend, or a map that looks more like maze, the freshness that travel brings becomes their inspiration.  Visual cues like universal signs, hand gestures or emotions on a face become bridges for negotiating the unfamiliar. This series is a story within a story - a reflection, recreation and reassembly of memories of places, spaces and moments that linger in our minds.
