Sculptures made of soil collected from the barren fields of farmers who have committed suicide, are used to document the plight of Indian farmers in recent times, from glory to misery at the iron hand of urban industrialisation.

WWYD (What Would You Do?)
Pixelated glimpse of some of the intimate moments of life. From a panicked search for a missing child, to the remnants of loss and war; this collection of live action, experimental, and animated works poignantly asks, “What would you do?” — Annie Liang & Eseel Borlasa
