> for
> > their activities, suggest 'portraits', or
> > re-presentations of persons/art forms.

> > The room of architect ROMI KHOSLA is a pavilion
> on
> > wheels. It invites the viewer to look up at the
> > suspended bed holding the architect's plans for
> old
> > cities, new cities and for environmental 'utopias'
> > within a globalized world.

> > The room of the RAQS MEDIA COLLECTIVE (
> Shuddhabrata
> > Sen Gupta, Jeebesh Bagchi, Monica Narula ) is a
> metal
> > container (with the work-bench as bed). Its
> structure
> > is a metaphor for their movement across the

> > new-media artists; it contains references to
> their
> > videos which are about satellite communication,
> about
> > new 'middle-class workers' selling their
> > English-speaking skills around the world.

> > Residence in two cities across continents is what
