Exhibition: Nature Embedded- a design technology experience

MoMA Mumbia, India
February 3 – March 4, 2018

The Exhibition themed on the Human’s everyday and everyman relationship with Nature hopes to bring to attention the fact that cultures such as ours had once consciously built their lives around Nature’s ways by following Nature’s rhythms, tapping into Nature’s resources, and emulating Nature’s designs. In time, this process of following Nature around had come to become tacit, ubiquitous and sub-conscious.

– a design technology experience

3rd February to 4th March 2018, National Gallery of Modern Art (MoMA), Mumbai

About the Exhibition:

‘Nature Embedded: a Design Technology Experience’ is an exhibition consisting of fifteen different medias that range from the conventional calligraphy, expressive photography, tessellated murals and product installations, to the more unconventional and emerging medias that leverage ethnography, infographics, motion graphics and interactivity(s) to convey life’ myriad messages.

In the process, Humans had also found it imperative to protect and preserve Nature from the deleterious effects of unbridled greed that Humans can be capable of.
In offering this tribute to Nature, the Exhibition finds it opportune to leverage Design and Technology as expressive tools with which to convey the idea of our intersections with Nature. And yet, remaining artistic as a celebration of Art as a mirror of Society,

Finally, the Exhibition also attempts to showcase the fairly systematic process that lies behind the use of a design cycle, deployed here from start to finish. And in sharing this with our audience, we hope to make the process of design and technology a more transparent affair than it usually is.
