‘Naukar ki kameez’ is a sort of engagement with overlapping images. Photographs turn the real, moving world into frozen experiences. Susanta played with these still images through his kinetic structures. Here, the moving lenses create a slippery zone, so that the image acquires multiple dimensions, produces fragility of images, their absence/ presence and different understanding of duration too.
