Failed 3d Prints and Drawings of Discarded Psychiatric Instruments from Kashmir and Melbourne, consists of drawings and 3d Resin prints extracted from 3d scans of discarded psychiatric instruments used as instruments of torture from Kashmir and Melbourne. Tracing the ghostly remnants of such discarded instruments, the work presents them as objects that transition between the dichotomies of invisibility and reproducibility. Through this disjunction, the work creates an archeology of care by examining its collision with clinical care and practices of power at occupations. However, these instruments, when discarded, are no longer just instruments of power but are also abstract marks of life disabled and life that persists.
