the West: Nivedita Madigubba

the West is a curated collage of images and sounds that are: fragmented living objects embedded with history and personal desires, and are products of peoples’ interactions on the web. In this work, each artist contributed images that define the term “West” to them, and sound files which trigger memories from their past. This work is composed by the pairings of these living objects and utilizes their storytelling capacity.

These pairings are accessible as a collage of visual and auditory files on desktop, mobile devices and as screen-printed images in an accordion book. This three part presentation examines narratives related to the term the West and their construction through different mediums or technologies.
