Otolith I is set in the 22nd Century, when the human race is no longer able to survive on earth and is obliged to live in the agravic conditions of the International Space Station. Dr. Usha Adebaran Sagar , the future descendent of Otolith Group member Anjalika Sagar , is an exo – anthropologist researching life on an earth that she can experience only through media archives. Otolith imagines a mutant future that simultaneously harks back to the post war era of non-alignment so as to indicate an connection between the production of commonality in South Asia, USSR and the present.
