The project is situated both, conceptually and physically in the realm of public, urban transit, specifically through the vector of metro transit systems. It functions in a space that is largely metaphorical and reactionary and is perceived as primarily being a vehicle for the practitioner to respond to the space he is in. Over time, the space within which the project is contained has lent itself to be a pocket dimension of sorts within the larger context of Art in Transit's intervention at Cubbon Park Metro Station. The project has revealed itself to public audiences over the course of two festivals and by the time of the second, has evolved to stress on certain paradigms at play that govern the functioning of all activities within the metro station.
Manu Sharma's work has thus far been situated in the realm of image making. Coming from a background in illustration, his means of communication have had to change drastically so as to catch the public eye better.For the project at Cubbon Park, his work has taken on a more meditative, instinctual stance vis-a-vis the direct, often comically exaggerated imagery he is used to producing.
Manu has begun learning projection mapping and audio and video editing softwares for this project and looks forward to a long relationship with the moving image.
The process followed for the project began with a basic immersion into the possibilities of video art. From there, projection mapping opened up as a major avenue with glitch art aesthetics becoming a recurring language. The space within which the project is contained has evolved over time to synergise better with the projected imagery. While the first festival saw the practitioner's features and voice projected as a narrator, this changed by the second festival and a voice actor became an important consideration as well. Coding and data bending using the java applet "processing" has also played an important role within the project.
