THE DEPOSITORY OF ATTENTION
“I was exploring the digital concept of Real Time Bidding or RTB. I was intrigued by a series of letters created by Arshi Ahmadzai, a poem by Amshu Chukki and a powerful image by Sanket Jadia. I further explored using these elements as a form of attention in my work. The final work can be experienced in the form of an interactive webpage comprising of videos and gifs.”
