Anhad (boundless) is a range of embroidered clothing created with an extraordinary group of Sujani artisans from Muzaffarpur district, Bihar.
Fractals are patterns formed from chaotic equations and contain self-similar patterns of complexity increasing with magnification. Naturally occurring fractals (seen in rivers, blood vessels, DNA, clouds, heartbeat, earthquakes to name a few) are unpredictable yet deterministic, when viewed holistically. They redefine chaos in nature.
In this set of work, we let the self similar embroidery patterns grow organically like fractals, following an instinctive rhythm, spreading abstractly over the surface of these garments, while we were in the process of creating.
