Description

As our lives get consumed by technology, we are using QR codes and bar codes everywhere we go. And when we're with people, we are often busy on our smartphones. Perhaps the day isn't too far, where instead of getting to know each other over an in-person conversation, we'll be scanning some code to understand people too? We must all reflect on how much we let technology pervade our lives, and the relationships we have with people.

This artwork is part of the Maati series by Ashu Gupta, where she depicts human emotions while highlighting the humble ‘matki’ (earthen pots made of maati or mud), as the hero. Humans and the matki, both eventually return to Mother Earth at the end of their lives. Drawing parallels between ‘us’ and the matki, the artist has portrayed different facets of human life in this series of artworks.
