Is your land silent?

Since humans have established for themselves, a rather distinct and superior place in the ecosystem, its interaction with nature has evolved manifold. The idea of a shared co-existence seems unreasonable to the human kind as it continues to mark its dominance over nature. The project looks at an unmonitored interaction between the humans and non-human animals, where both, giving in to their ‘animal’ instincts experience a threat from each other. The artist encounters a life of helplessness; every day fed by the fear of what might crush the moment’s unsettling balance in the silence of the night. Through a film and photographs, the work documents a shared landscape at the periphery of Panna National Park in Madhya Pradesh, India.
