Part of শরীর | Körper: The memory collector, Kunstrum, Aarau, Switzerland.

240 hours was developed during my 10 days quarantine period when I reached Aarau. Living on closed doors in an unknown city and house, I looked at my body as a living object surrounded by the objects that constituted the character of the house. Spending 240 hours inside the studio apartment in an unknown city/country I generated a relationship with the city through the sounds from the windows and the skylight. Each day I began documenting the unfamiliar sounds in the form of text and documenting my presence in the space in the form of photographs
