SARV SATVIK RASHTRA | ATMANIRBHAR 2Q48 This interactive experience intertwines impending ecological fissures, growing fascism, ongoing pandemic and the overbearing frustration with the virtual only world. It invites users to interact with an imaginary food machine, the Atmanirbhar 2Q48, by asking them to pick their favourite dish. There is no correct choice in a world of errors, ambiguity and garishness. This project is part of Fissure Curated By Shaleen Wadhwana At Virtual Nursery 2020 By Pollinator. See it here.
