Science, time, and Rohini Devasher’s art4 min read 07 Sep 2016, 04:42 PM IST
Rohini Devasher's new show adds an element of speculation to deep scientific pursuit
The year Rohini Devasher joined the College of Art, she also joined a group of amateur astronomers in New Delhi. The motley set comprised children, men and women of all age groups, and they would often travel to different spots—within the city and outside—to observe the night sky’s many wonders and photograph them. It was during one such trip to Hanle in Ladakh, where the Indian Institute of Astrophysics has an observatory that Devasher realized that she was more fascinated by the people photographing the sky with wonder, than she was in the sky itself.
