Mumbai, 1975. Lives and works in Mumbai.
Shaina Anand trained as a filmmaker, and now does various projects with ‘expanded video’: television, cable TV, CCTV, in ways that challenge the traditional methods and usual consequences of image capture and distribution. Recent projects have made use of such present and accessible
technologies to create temporary autonomous communication zones, and other provocative media landscapes. In 2001, she founded the independent media platform chitrakarkhana.net, and is now also co-director of CAMP, a new arts initiative in collaboration with Khoj International Artists Association.
