Founded by Vrinda Sekseria, Metis Practice explores links between architecture, urban studies, socio-cultural theory and photographic practice with a focus on cultural archaeology of urban space and the politics of architectural memory, materiality, construction and decay. Vrinda set up a dim room for alternative photo-printing at Kala Ghoda in 2012 and at her architectural studio in Khar in 2019. A member of the International Urban Photographers Association, she has exhibited her photographic work as part of group shows in Mumbai, London, Bogota, and Portugal. Vrinda has been a visiting faculty at various architectural colleges in Mumbai.
Her Analogue Lab allows for experimentation with camera-less photography and printing while simultaneously integrating some of these processes within the architectural practice. Cyanotope printing is a process that captures details through light and shadow in the sun. The special DIY kits she has created allow anyone to experiment with and enjoy this sci-art process.
