Humans constantly exchange psychological and social behavioural traits around the world through mediums of communication known to us. On one hand it gets uneasy to ignore subjects regarding the behaviour and attitudes of people as observed in Indian societies. On the other hand it is interesting to observe even the opposite amongst culture outside of India. What is more interesting is the way attitudes and beliefs are exchanged, making their way across the world except for some being rejected by Indian societies.

Spirit of Night is a series of works portraying the power of a flower, an organism felt and known to be a symbol of beauty. This power refers to the vibrations that the flower emits when we are in its captivity. It often influences our choices through energies not exactly understood. People grow attachments to various flower types and their symbols. This attraction toward a flower is revealing about the person drawn to it for instance the revealing of inner character traits and this questions the depth of the person's relationship toward his or her surroundings. The works portray floral energy being transferred from flower to an individual who is then immediately absorbed by its presence. As a result, this allows for a deeper understanding of bonds because spirit itself lies within every being, constantly communicating.
