#2206 : of straw-bits and waning energies

mumbai, india. may 2006
@ home

one of the process models for a design project. somehow a couple of photos related to this project have found their way into this blog: 0214 and 0408. the idea, as in the other photos too, was to represent waning energy. now if only someone would pick a photo-number that's of the final product of this design exercise.

a painting done for the 'grid house' project of architecture design II of 2nd year. the thought here was to represent waning energy bands and transfer of energy from one band to another. an earlier post related to this project here.

# 0168 : after the floods

mumbai, india. august 2005
@ home, juhu

after the july 2005 floods that created havoc across the city. the house, being on the ground floor, had a couple of feet of water; overturned beds, a floating fridge and what not. once the waters receded and the muck was removed, began the rather painful process of getting everything back in order
