People From Before (excerpt), Installation with 3-Channel Video + 100 Photos, 2008, 4:19 of 9:21

[vimeo w=420&h=320]

People From Before is composed of three channels of video and almost 100 small photographs. All of the photographs were taken from my Grandparent’s flat in London and largely depict my family from the 30’s-70’s. The videos span a four year period in which my Grandparent’s discussed these photos with me and reminisced and recalled their life story fighting for India’s independence, moving to London just before it occurred, recovering from TB in Davos, and starting the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan in London. The piece shows an emotional and disjointed history of a family’s roots towards the end of one its most Cherished chapters.
