MEMORIES OF THE SELF AND THE COLLECTIVE
We started this exercise by dividing ourselves into three groups; The Wanderers, The Wonderers and The Dreamers. In groups of four or five, we used words as triggers written on post-its to explore our own memories on MIRO boards.
Starting from a set of words written on yellow and blue post-its the Dreamers explored memories related to their homes in separate areas of the miro board and slowly made their way to each other. They dreamed of fantastical staircases, tunnels and situations inspired by stories of home.
The Wonderers started with a collection of words written on a line of
yellow post-its snaking across their board. They began populating the areas around the post-its with their own memories triggered by those words. Slowly they started interacting with each other's memories and building connections across them, exploring the wonders of stories of home.
The Wanderers started with ten words on post-its and then drew out the memories triggered by them. They started connecting to each other's stories, found relatable instances and brought in videos, audio clips and photographs wandering across the board and across different mediums.
Listen to the Audio clips
Where the entire crew came together
As the finale for this segment of the studio, we recorded 7-minute audio clips from all our homes. We then randomly assigned an audio clip to each person. Along with this, a fuzzy plan was also given. While listening to the audio clip, the dreamers, the wonderers and the wanderers drew out their imaginations.
For this segment of the studio, we invited architect and illustrator Leeza John and architect and visual artist Chandani Patel to collaborate with us.
