Roadscene (2021), 3.19 min

This video work is part of an ongoing project where constructed 3d digital spaces would communicate narratives and navigate the spaces that bear the signs of an authoritarian regime. This particular work is in extension a representational digital construct of the farmer agitation that happened at the Delhi border. The various elements constructed in the video such as tractors, barricades and wire fences, flashing images of a deity, isolated flowering plants stopping at the foot of the fortifications, specters and finally a stage for political speech, speaks of public protest and resistance, mystification and repression, and hope in the face of continuous struggle. The road thus transforms into a site of conflict, fortified as it is, and this conflict takes the shape of a war zone during a time of cessation yet not a truce. The road transforms itself into a site of hope.
