About the book

A set of 36 cards

Life is a balancing act between what one wants to do (our natural instincts) and what one has to do (social obligations). This set of cards capture these necessary intricacies of life using three simple forms – a human figure, a circle (our natural instincts) and a square (social obligations). Sometimes the circle and the square are a world apart; and sometimes they coincide. Sometimes the person is caught in the intersections and sometimes they tread quietly by. Every card represents a different situation and calls out different echoes from within the viewer’s mind.

These 36 cards can be used as narrative games, where same situations are reimagined with alternative courses of action. They can be used to make up stories about different characters, or as a tool for introspection; a way for us to remember and tell stories from our lives, and a way for us to become better friends with ourselves.
