Urban Flutes is a socially engaged art project that addresses ecological concerns and their impact on our lives in metro cities. In this participatory project, my intention is to fathom various alternative techniques to increase the scope of greenery within the limited spaces in these cities, to counter environmental issues. The project will also put forth the question of how we can use knowledge to create sustainable practices through community engagement.
The project closely documents the fine lines of human relationship with plants and trees. Our interactions with plants don’t only impact the health of plants, but it deeply reflects our mental health. How does the changing landscape affect human psychology over time and physical health, and also our relationship with nature, spaces and with our fellow human beings?
