Roshangoalle comprises of a Light Sign Text “The Valley of Eternal Happiness” which is being lit by the audio frequencies of a speech generated by a Machine Learning algorithm. The algorithm produces and predicts new audio texts by analyzing hours of speeches made during the electoral campaigns in India about Kashmir. The Light Sign Text is lit by the loudness in the audio but the audio always fails to fully lit the text. The work addresses the spectacles, stereotypes and absurdities present in the narratives of political imaginaries of Kashmiri landscape. It questions the popular notions of the landscape, its representation, territorialization and marginalization.
