SELF INITIATED BRIEF I CHING COMPENDIUM

Currently on display at AUCB Disperse Exhibition. The I Ching (pronounced e-jing) or Book of Changes is an ancient Chinese text containing within it an explanation of the entire laws of the universe by which all things are governed, and carries explicit directions on how man should conduct himself so as to remain continuously in harmony within these laws. This compendium (intended as an introductory study guide) can be used as a basis for meditation; as a lead for furthering ones knowledge of oneself and the universe; and for practical guidance on the everyday problems of life. The hanging tablets represent the sixty four results it is possible to obtain when consulting the I Ching. The text is an original interpretation from definitive works of Wilhelm and Karcher. Contains - Display tablets ( laser etched and cut acrylic), Guidebook (french fold, bible paper), Posters, Notebook, Coins, Pencils.


TYPOGRAPHY NATURES LETTERS


Based on ISTD brief: Not Just Fleurons, this project utilised nature as a stimulus to inform all design decisions. The letters, combining hand drawn typography, ligature styles and a grid system, contain intricate detail best viewed on a larger scale, hence the production of the wooden displays.

SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE A British Film

Slumdog Millionaire is a 2008 British film directed by Danny Boyle, written by Simon Beaufoy, and co-directed in India by Loveleen Tandan. It is an adaptation of the novel Q & A (2005) by Indian author and diplomat Vikas Swarup. Set and filmed in India, the film follows the tumultuous path of three slum children -- two boys and a girl; one of the boys becomes a champion in the Indian Who Wants To be a Millionaire show. But he also becomes a suspect, with the police wanting to know if the former slum kid has been cheating in the show.

Poverty

Two of the child stars of Slumdog Millionaire apparently still live in abject poverty in the slums of India. Rubina and Azharuddin live a few hundreds yards from each other in a tangle of makeshift shacks alongside Mumbai’s railway tracks at Bandra. Azharuddin is in fact worse off than he was during filming: his family’s illegal hut was demolished by the local authorities and he now sleeps under a sheet of plastic tarpaulin with his father, who suffers from tuberculosis.

“It doesn’t matter where you come from”

Slumdog Millionaire has stirred controversy concerning language use, its portrayals of Indians, Hinduism, and the welfare of its child actors.

Following its release in India, the film faced criticism from various members of the public alleging that the film fuels Western stereotypes about poverty in India and that it peddles

‘poverty

porn’. Nicholas Almeida, a social activist working in Mumbai, organized a protest against the film on the grounds that it intentionally exploited the poor for the purposes of profit, also arguing that the title is offensive, and insulting to their dignity. The protesters were Mumbai slum dwellers who objected to the film’s title and held up signs reading:

‘I am not a dog’. ‘underdog’

The film’s director, Danny Boyle said that ‘Slumdog’ was a hybrid of the word – and everything that means in terms of rooting for the underdog and validating his triumph – and the fact that he comes from the slums.

“The movie is at its heart, about aspiration, and about dreams coming true. This ‘common man’ Jamal, is not angry, like the Indian men of the 1970s. He is both hopeful and relentless, defiant and proud of his origins even as the people around him call him a ‘slumdog’. He knows better -

that it doesn’t matter where you come from, only where you are headed.”

IMAGES SHOWING THE SLUM AREAS

The Real India Dharavi All cities in India are loud, but nothing matches the 24/7 decibel level of Mumbai, the former Bombay, where the traffic never stops and the

Noise

, however, is not a horns always honk. problem in Dharavi, the teeming slum of one million souls, where as many as 18,000 people crowd into a single acre. Dharavi is routinely called “the largest slum in Asia,” a dubious attribution sometimes conflated into “the largest slum in the world.” This is not true. Mexico City’s Neza-Chalco-Itza barrio has four times as many people. In Asia, Karachi’s Orangi Township has surpassed Dharavi. Even in

12 million population

lives in Mumbai, where about half of the city’s swelling what is euphemistically referred to as “informal” housing, other slum pockets rival Dharavi in size and squalor. Yet Dharavi remains unique among slums. A neighborhood smack in the heart of Mumbai, it retains the emotional and historical pull of a subcontinental Harlem—a square-mile (three square kilometers) center of all things, geographically, psychologically, spiritually. Its location

has also made it in Mumbai, a city that epitomizes India’s hopes of becoming an economic rival to China. Indeed, on a planet where half of humanity will soon live in cities, the forces at work in Dharavi serve as a window not only on the future of India’s burgeoning cities, but on urban space everywhere.

Slumdog Millionaire’s Controversy

Poverty in India is widespread with the nation estimated to have one of the

largest concentration of poor people in the world and housing a third of the world’s poor.

42%

According to the a 2005 World Bank estimate, of India’s falls below the international poverty line. According to the criterion used by the Planning Commission of India 27.5% of the population was living below the poverty line in 2004–2005, down from 51.3% in 1977–1978, and 36% in 1993-1994. A disproportionally large share of poor are lower caste Hindus called Dalits. In many parts of India, land is largely held by high-ranking property owners of the dominant castes that economically exploit low-ranking landless labourers and poor artisans.

Environment pollution in India

“All East Indians are not filthy, but the filthiest of the world are always East Indian.” Couple this with India’s teeming population, and you see a very grave danger to planet earth and its environment. The rapidly growing population and economic development are leading to the environmental degradation in India through the uncontrolled growth of urbanization and industrialization, expansion and massive intensification of agriculture, and the destruction of forests. It is estimated that the country’s population will

1.26 billion

by the year increase to about 2016. The projected population indicates that India will be the first most populous country in the world and China will be ranking second in the year.

42%

1 billion children live in poverty (1 in 2 children in the world). 640 million live without adequate shelter, 400 million have no access to safe water, 270 million have no access to health services. 10.6 million died in 2003 before they reached the age of 5 (or roughly 29,000 children per day).
