Interim (2018) is an annual programme run by Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology in Bangalore. My programme focussed upon the water crisis in Bangalore. Only a generation ago, the city had over 900 tanks (reservoirs/lakes) providing clean drinking water to the population. Now there are less than 90. For
Interim the students and I explored water-based issues focussed on tanks in Bangalore, through field trips, studio work, seminars and presentations. We developed collaborative maps of the tanks, using our bodies as sensory data collectors. Tuning into non-visual sensory experience, we developed ‘scores’, to generate a ‘legend’ for these maps. We then ‘pooled’ our ideas onto large collaborative maps, requiring that we negotiate a shared space. These maps became the backdrop for a performance at the end of the studio.
