Drawing animation

Duration: 3 minutes

Untimely Calendar/Asamayavali, National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA), New Delhi (2014)

In the world of labour, men and women, animals and devices come together and diverge in all sorts of interesting ways. The coupling and uncoupling of gears and wings, of claws and hands, of hooves and feet, of algorithms and interfaces, of prostheses and parantheses – in these we find the stirrings of a twilight language. Machine drawings metamorphose into eccentric beasts and birds and make their way into the future. Future plans dance, inaugurating a new biology of animate fragments, the nuts and bolts of reveries, and the odds and ends of desires that leap off the page of our time.
