This photo shows part of the gallery’s large front window (with a motif of intersecting triangular shapes made of black vinyl) from the inside, a dim sky outside, and portions of the windowframe and wall inside. On portions of the windowframe and wall inside, black vinyl letters are installed directly onto the white gallery walls, in the form of words and phrases in English and Hindi. Text appears in different sizes and spatial orientations (e.g., right-side up, upside-down, diagonal, vertical, and organic shapes), with some words/phrases expanded in space, condensed, or intersecting with other text. A gestural drawing—also made of black vinyl—is shown on the top left-hand side of the image.
