This work references the classic snakes and ladder games with subjects shown against checkerboard landscapes in which striped images of snakes and ladders float. Much like the origin of the game which is rooted in Indian philosophy and was initially used as a tool for teaching moral lessons to children and adults, the exhibition takes as a central subject the individual and collective choices that inform our understanding of the moral and social qualities of life.
