Khanna produces billboards and houses made of mirrors and situates them in the local landscape. She is interested in using the three-dimensional object in the form of the mirror sculpture to articulate a two-dimensional image. In her exploration of the Hudson Valley she intends to employ the landscape as a medium in and of itself, using the mirrors as a tool to explore issues of culture, place, and the concept of home.
