The Alter Project is about what the artist felt during his short residency in Chennai, India and how it has affected him. Differing cultural backgrounds of people often determine how one perceives things and the resultant reaction to certain phenomena. This is referred to as ‘cultural relativism’ and serves as the viewpoint for these works. These works also echo the artist’s initial questions about beliefs and prejudices in The Witch Hunting Project. The artist is of the opinion that no matter what people’s preconceptions may be, they should learn to acknowledge and respect each other’s beliefs. Through the project, the artist asks how the diversity of cultures, languages, races and religions may be respected and accepted in this era of globalisation. In an era of diversity, absolute faith must not result in any form of violence.
