Ancient philosophies have explained that man is the microcosm of the Universe; a tiny part mirroring the macrocosm in its structure and functions. The theory describes human beings and their place in the universe, revealing a deep and seamless relationship between everything known and unknown, internal and external, animate and inanimate. Adopted and studied by both spirituality and science, the interconnection between the macrocosm and the microcosm is a subject of vast interest, and provides the possibility of exploration in multiple dimensions- physical, conceptual, cognitive and artistic as well. The entire universe is made up of particles, and as living, breathing creatures, we are intrinsically one with it, and cannot be detached as much as contemporary phenomena has separated humanity from nature. As a seed is part of the tree, and the tree is part of the seed, so it is with us.

International Print Exchange Programme (IPEP), India is a non-profit initiative through which printmakers share their work with each-other across the globe. Participants individually exhibit the IPEP compiled portfolio in their respective locations and get to add it to their own collection. Consequently, their work gets exhibited internationally. IPEP boosts networking among printmakers and creates awareness about printmaking as an art form among its viewers.
