My interest is to create the Idea of a home or shop, which only becomes complete when it involves  the presence of people. The presence of existence also reflects on the objects of daily use. I believe  any object has two sides, one is its functionality which we are aware of, and the second is the  memory-related tits which we often ignore or do not realize. The same things work with the house,  it only becomes home when it is filled with objects to be used to build memories. I belong to a  middle-class family, in India. So whenever I create an object I always try to pick those objects which  can be seen in middle-class everyday life. People interact with them in order to use them which  leads to the building of memories around them. Through my work, I try to create a different world  with reference to the spaces/objects I see around me or have experienced but also adding a surreal  narrative emerging from the memories of those spaces/objects. The series of objects which I am  making with papers is the representation of every struggle of my family relating it to the struggle  faced by any middle-class family in our country. The miniature scales of my works are to create a  sense of intimacy or closeness. My paper sculptures act like a mutant object where a real object  merges into another to create both relation and contrast to each other. There is a constant push and  pull that happens to create a story. This force of attraction and diversion as reflects the everyday  struggle my family goes through in terms of socio, political and personal crises. The use of paper in  my work is to outline the paper as a very regular medium found in our house in many forms. It can  be a daily newspaper, a paper carry bag we use in the market, a paper from mother's dairy where  she keeps the calculations of daily expenses, or a paper from the receipt book of my father's tailor  shop. But I always try to keep the paper blank or white without any attachments or references as I want people to draw their own stories or references.
