My Virtual Daughter: Indian Girl, Italian Paper, Pakistani Silk

2011
Silkscreen print and embroidered thread on Fabriano (70cm x 100cm)

My Virtual Daughter began as a found photograph taken by an unknown itinerant Indian photographer, now in the collection of Delhi-based curator Satish Sharma.
It functions as a meditation of the melancholy inherent within imagined identities, histories and geographies.
