Poetry, Social Commentary, Performance Art, Collaboration
In collaboration with a transgender artist, Sandeepta, I developed a piece that was born from unusual fashion poses and questioning the openness of the fashion industry to transgender people. It evolved into questioning my own stereotypes and biases and if I let it go, would my imagination be restricted to gender.
Collaboration, Performance Art, Experimental
"Leaving" is the journey of a relationship, power dynamics, the struggle to stay or not, influenced by internal or external forces.
Conceptualized, captured and edited by Sahil Sen.

The video was made to support a group performing a dance at a cultural festival.

Experiment: Colour/Mixed Footage/Mood
Audio (source of inspiration): Radha Mahendru
Primarily shot in a day, a play with colour keying effects and a mix offootage from different contexts. Matching similar movement to connect otherwise disconnected imagery and playing with repetition of narrative elements.
A self-imposed restriction of using limiting and unexpected technology such as MS Paint and Virtual DJ, created this comical exploration of relationships and differing perceptions.
The result of a spontaneous observation exercise, edited together to capture the mood of the space and suggestion of a character’s story.
It is labelled as a film exercise, along with many other uploads on my youtube channel, the descriptions of each offering simple ideas for people to explore filmmaking.
A candid account of a 21yr old - profound, cynical and a disturbing reflection of contemporary youth. While it is not a universal truth, it begs the question, how many people, young and old, are experiencing life like this and what should we do about it.
Song Composition, Travel Log, Documentary Experiment
To piece together the sites of unconventional creative expression, exploring the travel log in a different form, I wrote a short rhyming comment on Delhi and my connection to it and digitally composed backing music to stitch it together.
Genre Experimentation, Wedding Video Art, Visual Play, Music Composition
