“Breaking the 5th Wall” explores Thakkar’s observation of details and intricacies that make up our world but are often overlooked. She has encountered numerous stories with those told about ceilings taking the spotlight. Her attention started to look for patterns in these spaces discovering entire worlds in each unique space.
