Vikram Uchida-Khanna – lives and works in Oslo and Vancouver. His writing has appeared in Billedkunst journal. He is currently writing a play about human history from the point-of-view of dogs, plants and rocks and studying Proto-Indo-European.
During Rupert residency, Vikram has worked on a project about the development of Proto-Indo-European, a reverse-engineered language that theoretically reconstructs the grammar, myths and poetry of an ancestral Eurasian language. Vikram was inspired by an image that emerges of the goddesses of night and day passing a shuttle back and forth across a loom, their actions corresponding to the journey of the sun.
