So we began trying out some new directions for the installations we make since I was getting kind of bored of the previous set ups. The idea is to build small modular video projection systems, so that one doesn't have to build set ups from scratch all the time, and save some money in the process too. The set up here involves a bunch of circular screens that can be screwed together for several arrangements, and also a bunch of tensile, somewhat phallic forms that handle the projections quite well. Better pictures and video coming soon hopefully.

In typical Indian chaotic style, its launch day and the darn cooks decide they don't want to come anymore, so we did some rapid disaster management and have been taking care of the place ourselves. Its a blessing in disguise, though super tiring, but amazing to be with friends, cook, serve, plan..the place is inspiring and fun, and a little community right now, discovering together what it takes to take care of a little restaurant. The interiors are the brainchild of Cell Design and Mia Morikawa, with small additions by Thiruda. The food is a joint effort of several people, notably, Mia, Thiruda, Arya, Dennis, Rikta, Kassia and Usha Aunty (for her lovely cakes). Swing by sometime and check out another example of what happens when worlds collide.

Finally getting some time to look at what happened during the UnBOX weekend, so here is the first set of content from there - the flyers! >> gives you a fair idea of what we were trying to do - bring medium, disciplines and people together for one ray packed weekend. The day started in the mornings with the UnBOX Design Conference, which comprised of a conference and several workshops everyday. Follow this up with the Beat Repeat literature and rich media evening, or the EyeMyth Visual Music Film Festival, followed by the Salon Der Alchemisten experimental music, creation and food space, and finish the night dancing at the TechnoDrome festival! I think we all almost died making this happen between our collectives - Quicksand, CoDesign, BLOT, BlindBoys and Qilla Records. More coming soon! >>
