Muzzumil brings to life non-existent entities that discreetly assimilate into our surroundings. His works integrates his interaction with his space. Ruheel’s trajectory acts as a catalyst for bringing these intangible phenomena into their physicality; helping their formation from one plane to another. Transporting intangible discourses into a tangible manifestation is based on the discourse that ensues with core observation. He is a storyteller who continuously questions, analyses literature, observe migratory patterns, and their consequent consequences. He uses his findings, tales and fragments in his process to recreate his interactions with time, space, semiotics and history. His works are usually fictional in nature and his mediums vary as per project.
