Mukesh Sharma

Messenger

Mukesh Sharma’s work titled Messenger takes its cue from “The Infinite Monkey Theorem” which states that a monkey hitting keys at r&om on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare. The metaphoric images of keyboards running through most of the works invite us to question the effect of technology on present human condition. Rather than addressing an overarching theme.
