"I Turned and Walked Away" shown at MOMA

Following on from a screening of "dreaming" (a short film collaboration with Koo Bhangra) in Tate Britain a few years ago, "I Turned Around and Walked Away" was shown at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York in September as part of the exhibition "Facets of Figuration".

The film has also been shown as part of the Big Screen Project in Manhattan and at the "Untitled" Magazine's "Voyeur" exhibitions in Miami, New York and Paris.

Stills from Satsangi's Down Down video

"Alt-rock sensation Satsangi may just be the epitome of a global music group. Hailing from different parts of the world like Kerala to the West Midlands, the band have now released the video for their new hit 'Down Down.'" MTV Desi


"Judging Satsangi’s potential by ‘Iodine’ alone, though, would be a misrepresentation of the band’s eclectic sound which could just as quickly swerve from a raucous strain (‘Down Down’) to a dulcet serenade (‘Babel’)."
Rolling Stone India


"The outfit’s tremendous scope is captured on its debut album, No Shoes in Satsang Hall, released last month in India on the Inreco label. Menon’s stylistically diverse and multi-textured vocals lay the foundation for Satsangi’s adventurous compositions." Rolling Stone India

 

metroscopic

Traumatised by the depressing regularity of his daily journeys, the man sits, waits, watches, dreams and reflects on time itself.


On this night-time underground, overground, train journey we travel in a time-altered, mirrored world which turns reality on it’s head and motivates us to view it in a completely different way.

The displacement of time and place mirrors the man who sits. He is used to the regularity of his journeys, but is deeply disturbed by them and is desperate to be free from his powerfully overbearing thoughts.

METROSCOPIC not only reconstructs our perspective but also alludes to the possibility of a multi-dimensional universe and depends on symmetry to produce a seemingly impossible series of moving images.

UP DOWN AND AROUND

A series of eccentric, deceptive and almost surreal journeys up and down the hills of San Francisco and over the Golden Gate.


On these exotic voyages we travel in an abstract and illusory mirrored world which turns reality, quite literally, on it’s head, and motivates us to view it in a completely different way.


We journey up Fillmore, but after turning into California, this bizarre world grinds to a halt and the whole process is reversed at great speed. And it is after this point, during the rewind, that second-long stills are imposed upon the viewer.


















A microsecond of suspended time, a frozen frame interrupting the furious flow of audio and visual.


These fleeting images are there to encourage the viewer to reflect on the actual passage of time and the world we live in - to enrich a sense of time and place and to enhance passing moments.
