Drive-by Video

“Drive-by video” is a presentation of video works of 15 artists. This event, on October 30 is supported by Prestige Construction who have generously given space to the project in Prestige Plaza—a new shopping center on Yelehanka New Town Main Road.

Located near Mother Dairy Circle, Drive-by Video can be seen in the future commercial spaces of Prestige Plaza from moving vehicles, passers-by or those that come specifically to view each work. The videos have a broad range of content, from documenting nature, to animation of everyday life, to how to pack a suitcase.

Artists:
Abhishek Hazra, Abhiyan Humane, Aileen Blaney, Alison Byrnes, Chinar Shah, Leslie Johnson, Matt Lee, Otto Mogren, Rachita Rao, Siddhanth Shetty, Smriti Mehra, Tahireh Lal, Ujjwal Utkarsh, Upasna Bhatia, Vinayak Nagesh

Kolams

Over the past couple of months I have been photographing Kolam designs in the area around my street in Yelahanka, Bangalore.

Drawn outside the entrance of the home, Kolams are thought to bestow prosperity. Made with rice powder, the symmetrical patterns range in both size and complexity and often seem to represent wealth or status.
