Kochi-Muziris Biennale

Two years in the making, Destroyed Word involved the construction of 10 giant letters across 10 nations, each built from a product relevant to the country in which it was made. Each letter was then spectacularly annihilated and recorded on film.United as a video installation, the 10 films spell a word referencing the demise of the global economy. Destroyed Word is internationally relevant and speaks to the state of our world today.
