Chimes of Freedom is a 144inch huge installation made out of aluminum, silkscreen print, airbrush on stencil and drawing using pen and ink. Painted over the cylindrical metallic tubes, are words that reference people, things and object that have made a difference in people's life written either in Hindi or in English. A softheaded hammer is also kept at the audience's disposal to strike the tubes with.
Using newspaper imprint on aluminum, the daily clamor of information in today's day and age is reflected from which the stenciled words emerge in a golden luster. The auditory impulse of the work transforms the place into a meditative and introspective zone. The bludgeoning sound levels enveloping us in our daily urban charade is slowly silencing the peace and tranquility of our times. Today, it is the noise of urban, metropolis hurry and flurry that brings consolation to many for it keeps them away from the demons of their actions, which they have to face when surrounded by silence.
