Importance of rhythm and movement   

Visual movement Guiding the eye Creation of life within a flat surface


Pattachitra, West Bengal •

Vertical scrolls, used as a backdrop for singing local folk songs

The whole composition is seen in parts throughout the performance

The Patuas are made after the death of a landlord or an influential person, so his life is potrayed in a sequence


Kaavad, Rajasthan Used as a backdrop for the oral story-telling tradition of Rajasthan Regular rhythm Similar to Scroll Pattachitra/Jadu Patua, but the panels are opened and closed horizontally

Mural to use luminescent shells collected by family on vacation Progressive rhythm prevalent in nature


Pramukh Greens, Surat Craft used: Gond from Madhya Pradesh Idea was to juxtapose movements in two different planes, the line would vary in thickness vertically and the birds will be dynamic The lines were meant to be in progressive rhythm, but an on-site call was taken to go random, to create an element of interest
