This two year long project seeks to work on the index to Janaki Nair’s book on Bengaluru called The Promise of the Metropolis. Using each category, in the index, I search for images that best illustrate it. I then respond to this with another image/text that articulates a tangent to it. This is an attempt to enter into a history that completely eluded me or more accurately that which was kept away. As an image based entry into the city the project explores people, spaces and the politics of it and I hope will provide tangents to fly out on, out of designed constrictions.
