Rangpur Therapy (excerpt), 2-Channel Video Installation, 2006, 2:52 of 10:24

Rangpur Therapy is a two-channel video installation in which I record myself in “conversation” with my Grandfather’s projected image. Grandpa recounts details of growing up in a large family of straitened circumstances, going to boarding school in Bombay, and starting his professional career in London. From time to time I pause the footage and interjects questions and comments, as if enacting an idealized version of the original conversation. On the floor a monitor plays a simultaneous shot of my profile, underscoring that despite the illusion of human interaction, the piece documents a solo performance.
