Jacket / LED display / performance and walks / 2008


Voice is a jacket, which spells out statements at its back using an array of LEDs. It is intended to be used as a mechanism for people to say what they want in cities. Across boundaries and restrictions and politics. Voice was also a series of performances in which I walked around many neighbourhoods of Delhi wearing this jacket with some contextual statements.

The walks were around Delhi University, the informal settlements at Okhla industrial estate, Basant Lok, the old Yamuna bridge, Safdarjung flyover and the Indian Parliament. Photo-documentation of the walks and more information can be found here.

This project was realized as part of the PEERS residency programme at Khoj.
