Ruchi Bakshi is a filmmaker, artist, and toymaker. Her picaresque characters, often based on outlandish folklore and equipped with supernatural powers, seem to inhabit a strange and wonderful world of myth and fancy. Her work stands for her own fringe theories about the origin of this world. Everything that surrounds her soaks into her art, emphasizing her interest in creating an alternative way of seeing. Ruchi works with a variety of media, ranging from optical toys, animating wonder turns, lenticulars to jointed paper puppets, zines, and illustrated puzzles.
