Smiha Kapoor’s interest lies in investigating notions of the non-dual and often employs tracing as a conceptual strategy to weave connections across various planes of presumed separations. Exploring technology opens up possibilities for tracing and looping worlds into each other. She is interested in exploring the performative body and its intersection with mechanical and digital technology and how one medium can transform through its interventions.
