DUST AND DEBRIS IN THE ARCHIVES
- a kaleidoscopic conversation on how to look at dust in meaningful ways
Herb Garden Amphitheatre, Archives at NCBS, Eastern Labs Complex, NCBS

Followed by tea and snacks.
Line Krom the artist that stirs up the dust. As part of the bangaloREsidency
programme, she has been an artist-in-residence at the Archives at the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS) for the past two months
. During this time, dust, debris, and other discarded objects from the Archives were her obsession
. She was shining a light on the various literal and semantic meanings of dust.
Line has been working with dust for 10 years now, but her time at NCBS has poised her at the beginning of a new vista of understanding. Her journey led her to new intersections between the arts, archives, and sciences, as her path crossed with experts from these fields.
Her discoveries so far have been pieced together into a work journal
. The journal is not a culmination of her research, but an archival object, collecting the various experiences, experiments, results, and thoughts she has come across. Its purpose is not to tell her story, but to allow the creation of one, so that the journey of today may one day culminate in a woven narrative. The work journal, an artist book, will be unveiled before the public on this day.
Together with her collaborators Aditi Mishra, Ipsa Jain, Malavika PC, and Venkat Srinivasan, Line will give a brief report on her research
