Storytelling Through Art
June 8, 2020 Drishti Bhandari
“Lost in Transit” is the thesis work of Drishti Bhandari ’20 MFA (Metals and Jewelry Design). It focuses on the sense of loss we experience when our heritage and stories are passed down.
“Like a game of Chinese Whispers, every generation loses a little of its past — which gets left behind. We do not have, in all originality, what the previous generation had. We will only ever have their echoes in pictures, stories and ruins. The only common thread is that all generations experience this loss, of the stories and lived experiences left behind and vanished in time. The loss stretches wider with every passing day. My body of work aims to highlight this sense of loss that occurs during transit.”
