Based in Bengaluru, India



Lohani's work is concerned with the interrelations of communication and anxiety in the Post-Internet Age. Digitized human communication systems facilitated by social media and human-machine communication made possible by interactive personal assistant systems are important points of inquiry. Recurring themes in her work are politics of communication in the techno-capitalist age, disembodiment, isolation by technology, spirituality and mental health. She is fascinated with life in the urban city, what it means to be human today and the evolving dynamics of intimacy in human relationships.


      She works with Drawings on paper, Sound and Voice, Video, and GIF to think through their influence on the everyday human interaction online. Her drawings on paper employ mark-making drawn from her meditation practice. They explore the internal psyche that is affected by the various obsessions of the post-internet world. Her interest lies in the contemporary experience of the mind, body and spirit.
