In 2007 I spent two months as an artist-in-residence in the community of Auroville in Southeast India near the city of Pondicherry. Although I photographed extensively during this time, I left feeling like I had not really completed my work there. As such, in 2008 I returned to Auroville for a month. During this stay I not only continued to photograph but also made a number of videos. The final result of these working visits is Project India. Project India is comprised of 2 photographic/multimedia works and 5 video pieces. I hope that in these works I have succeeded in capturing the range of my experience, from the serene land in Auroville to the chaos of Pondicherry’s big market, and the transitions in-between.
Auroville Moments is of everyday small moments taken within the community of Auroville.
