From 1990 onwards I have been engaged with interactive / cooperative / collaborative projects with Indian and international visual artists, classical vocalists, documentary filmmakers, and technicians. Simultaneously, since 1997 I have been involved with ongoing public art projects in collaboration with Adivasi artists and communities from Bastar, Central India. The process deals with the questions related to interactive /collaborative art practice as a negotiated strategy. Have participated in national and international artist’s workshops and residencies and have presented papers in seminars on art and my art practice, in India, Japan, Indonesia, U.K., U.S.A and Canada
