Slipping across the signage board, reminiscence of transit zones, marking arrivals and departures, numbers of the people migrating and those lost in this movement go by. Numbers become years becoming distances as chaotic memory takes over, a train going past a station, picking passengers no longer alive, at stations, first several unknown and then stopping at those known, Mumbai, New York, London, nodes of power, key metropolises under surveillance today.



Every line appears for few seconds before it swaps to the next. Only the words that are different from the previous line change, and sometimes the in between characters are interchanged, creating a visual and mental play
