Nihalani's work consists primarily of isometric shapes that highlight the existing geometry of the public space. The Bose Pacia gallery writes of Nihalani's work, saying "With the aid of fluorescent tape, the artist highlights and emphasizes elements of layering and depth already present in the urban environment. By drawing on points of urban design and architecture (bricks, grates, doorways, sidewalks, scaffolding, etc.) endemic to that setting, Nihalani creates playful opportunities for passersby to interact with the often ignored environment and to find intrigue in mundane spaces."
Nihalani's artwork can be found all over Brooklyn, though many of the tape installations are temporary--either removed through general human activity or by street cleaners and public employees. The space at Bose Pacia will have both temporary works that highlight the geometry of the environment, but also permanent works.
