A bit from the article: “The bird cages appear almost pantheonic. One can only imagine if they are meant to protect memories, prevent them from flying away, or if they represent a sense of captivity in which one is held to enduring customs. This is where Swati’s work, at once, celebrates, questions and examines those rituals and traditions carried over from former lives and binding immigrant communities.”
SAWCC’s Transmedia Literary Festival kicked off on Friday November 29th with ‘Mix Tape: Reading’ where seven SAWCC members including Swati read music inspired pieces. The event and Swati’s Scrolling Texts project was mentioned in A.C Lee’s Weekend Miser column in the New York Times.
