A lot has been keeping me busy this past month, the details of which I shall get into soon enough. As a result, I have not been able to find time for my personal projects which is close to unbearable for me.
Out of sheer desperation of putting out something that involves happiness and passion, I present to you a horribly shot, badly edited video compilation of my birthday last year. As a consequence of many unfortunate events that happened earlier that year, my birthday was, to me, a symbol of emancipation. I decided to spend it alone doing all the things I would like to do throughout the year and doing all the things that just make me happy.
In an effort not to give in to the comfort of my car, I set out to explore the city by public transport and on foot. I went to see monuments, exhibitions, old delhi, eat good street food. Here is the worst video to prove it 🙂
Here is my take on visualising sound through light projections.
I shot this today. I think I can keep staring at it for a really long time. It is meditative.
This time last year I went on my solo ski trip to Gulmarg, Srinagar. Today I am reliving that experience, hoping that the new year brings me the same happiness, good friends, independence and a lot of exciting projects to work on.
Is it weird that I am still pretty obsessed with the apocalypse?
In other news, I tried the lcd display on my arduino today. The code is not nearly as confusing as the million jumper cables I had to manoeuvre. I must say that contrary to popular belief (of my own) , I find the code much more endearing than the circuit.
Also, a quick shout out to the GIF. It is the poor-man’s video format, and in my eyes, most respectfully so. Poor men need video formats too, you know.
Here is a rough cut of the teaser to a little project I am working on, called Housemates. I experimented with different movements, focus and shadows. This was a fun little experiment I did to trick myself into learning how to make a film. Still learning how to edit effectively; please excuse the glitches.
This one is a throwback to last year, when the entire team at Design Route stepped out of the office for an hour everyday to slackline. I just dug out a set of gifs I had absolutely forgotten about. And some extra images too.
In order of appearance: Prachi, JP Ji, Channey, a repost of Anisha’s gif from before, Anantjeet, Saurabh, Saumyaa and I.
Soldier wounded in action!
And finally the double act, along with a badminton match across the slackline.
