‘The Night Has A Thousand Eyes’ is a collection of images, installation and film that interlace to become a visual reflection and response to childhood memories and a period of family history research undertook throughout a six month graduate artist residency at Backlit Gallery (2020).

‘Phosphorescence' comprises of four images that formed as a conceptual response to the family history research Jazz undertook whilst at Backlit. The images bring a moment of abyss and a sense of the sublime as the reds seep into a phosphorescence like light and the deep black shifts throughout to form amorphous objects.

‘Living Room’ is a contemporary installation set inspired by Jazz’s Indian Grandma’s living room from the early 2000s that derived from memories of spending time with her as a child. An experimental film re-imagines India’s first reincarnation thriller film ‘Mahal (1949)’ that plays on the TV-set exploring the discourse of immigrant families not sharing a common language generationally, leading to gaps in information and a loss in family history and a shared sense of reflection.
