Anindita's way of expressing the thoughts and emotions through sculptural installations is amazingly unique. Her performances in the medium of unfired clay portray the interrelation and interdependence between the social formation and morality.

Her creations are displayed in various parts of the world under the name Everything Ends and Everything Matters where the monumental earthy structures silently scream the blatant emotions. Wherever the exhibition is conducted, visitors appreciate the combination of art and live demonstration that she executes wonderfully.
"From clay we come and clay we become," is her mantra.
The special red clay used for this is brought from India and some other parts of the world. She shares the reason behind choosing the clay is, it symbolizes human skin. For her, it works as a metaphor for life and death.
Anindita belongs to a small town in North India. Soil or clay became a part of her everyday living as she played with soil in her childhood. And then she came up with some unique ideas that have set her apart.
Being a lady, Anindita is very focused to the women emotions towards life and death.
Clay has become a medium close to her heart which she uses to reveal deep thoughts.

Anindita in her works shows the personal feelings and emotions of inner fight she encounters in her everyday life.
