The brief for this installation was to add interest and dynamism to a large focal wall in ‘Quest’ mall, Kolkata. The idea was to showcase Bengal through an iconic piece of wall art.

We proposed to capture the theme by highlighting the contribution of the ‘people’ of Bengal rather than identifiable ‘objects’ of the region. With an intention to go beyond the traditional forms of depicting personalities, we pursued experimentation to employ alternate materials. After exhaustive exploration, we devised a ‘pin screen’ like methodology to achieve a bold installation.
