With Cressida Kocienski, 2014 HD video, TBD (work in progress)
Thwarted by two security guards standing at the entrance, the Explorer and the Local Guide have utilised espionage, interrogation, indirect gazes and remote sensing to enter the Pyramid. Cressida Kocienski, visiting Bangalore on a cross-cultural residency, plays the role of the BRITISH EXPLORER and I act as the LOCAL GUIDE in this work that considers the anthropological gaze in postcolonial spaces and negotiates paranoia and resistance to recorded media in certain privatized spaces. The Pyramid in question is the Infosys Pyramid in Electronic City, Bangalore.
NOTE This film was made and presented along side an experimental film class, Cine-topographs, that we co-taught at Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology.
