Venue THE PALETTE ART GALLERY 14, Golf Links NEW DELHI 110003 (INDIA) Tel : +91 11 41743034 / 24611483 / 24691053
PROGRAME For Palette and IDF 2012 - Design Trail, BLOT is curating some of its past works and creating bespoke installations with the idea of amplifying the idea of the 'Power of design' - specifically interdisciplinary design. Since BLOT is constantly shifting between highly artistic/conceptual domains and public spaces, we thought it would be engaging to present this new picture of creative practice that BLOT signifies- a somewhat collective studio approach to multiple situations that require intervention. B.L.O.T is the BASIC LOVE OF THINGS - an interdisciplinary collective that creates digital art, video art, installations and electronic musci arts. Based out of New Delhi, BLOT is also India's pioneering audiovisual performance ensemble.

Hanut is a contemporary jewellery designer, his distinctive palette and articulate design sensibility is drawn from a background that is both rich and vigorously au courant.

Working with 18 karat gold, and an assortment of exciting precious and semi-precious stones, Hanut’s jewellery can be described as whimsical and eclectic.

STAINLESS GALLERY, Mira Complex, Mathura Road, New Delhi
PROTOTYPE curated by Vishal K Dar A prototype* is an early sample or model built to test a concept or process or to act as a thing to be replicated or learned from. In recent years, one has come to believe that the notion of a zeitgeist (spirit of our times) is rather naïve. Its discarding gives way to more subtle analyses. By tracing the interlacing of economy, social structures, technology, and signification, we slowly come to grasp our world as a multiplicity of emerging sensibilities. Through project: (p)ROTO-type, one aims to scans the space of contemporary Indian design practices, to detect emerging threads of receptivity, that excite our senses. This would inform the project to define and create products for our homes, shops, and offices that modulate our moods and pique our desires. Project : (p)ROTO-type will span over 3 years, creating designproducts, lecture series, publication and networks with both cultural and corporate agencies to refine its processes and
