Paribartana Mohanty is a multimedia artist, working with video, storytelling, writing and painting. His recent work explores new environment-disaster-landscapes emerging near the coast of Bay of Bengal in Odisha, that studies deep impacts of recurring cyclones, tsunamis and land erosion on marginal communities, nature and culture. Paribartana’s interest and research is in examining how technologies of algorithmic networks, digitalization, data mining, access and surveillance are shaping public perception about ‘natural’ calamity, and how new government policies are changing the rural landscapes in Odisha. His work has been exhibited in many group exhibitions and film festivals, including MACAN Museum, Indonesia; Ars Electronica Festival, Linz (2022); New Museum, New York (2022); Chennai Photo Biennale 3 (2022); 35th European Media Art Festival at Osnabrk (2022) and others.
