THE FALLS was devised for ART IN TRANSIT – a scheme designed to place art in Bangalore’s Metro system. The work was completed by 20 students from Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology over a period of three weeks, and was installed at Vijayanagar Metro Station.
The installation consisted of 5 parts; a large format book, screen printed and cyanotype banners, a video projection, vinyl prints on the staircase risers and a laser installation. The inspiration for the project comes from the city of Bangalore where the project was made and displayed
