Moksha Shots Episode 21 – Digital Dopamine Solo Exhibition

by Jenny Bhatt

Jenny Bhatt’s work is essentially about the Pursuit of Happiness (Moksh). It uses humour to comment on social and cultural practices. 

Her oeuvre is a blend of pop surreal psychedelia and eastern philosophy infused with happiness.

She works within a concept she created, called MokshaShots.In eastern philosophy, ‘Moksh’ means salvation. Considering our lifestyles, we probably won’t get to full fledged Moksh, but we can get a shot of it. Everyone can make their own MokshaShotout of anything they find fulfilling: art, NFT’s, a vacation, a Ferrari or a Dopamine shot!

This series titled Digital Dopamine explores what constitutes our Happiness and how we define it. We confuse Happiness with that dopamine shot we get from validation on various digital platforms. We seem to have forgotten how to define our Happiness, without comparing it with others.

This series unviels MindMaps and Cosmograms. 

The MindMaps explore our subconscious minds via memory, nostalgia, self perception and the spiritual search. 

In ancient cultures, Cosmograms were made as energy diagrams, to balance the energies of the mind and body with the environment. Jenny creates contemporary cosmograms. They have become our objects of contemplation and our minds dwell on digital symbols, icons and psychological experiences triggered by them.

Much of our minds and our lives are now spent in digital environments. Technology promises to be our path to Moksh.
