L3 Design Studio ‘Between the Fracture and the Fold’ was conducted by Prof Percy Adil Pithawala and Dhruv Shah assisted by Sneha Lakhani during the Spring semester 2021 at CEPT University.
The focus of the studio was to introduce students to varied thought processes and theories of Design ranging from Postmodernism, Minimalism, Deconstruction to Structural Expressionism.
The images shared in this folio are from the initial warm up exercise related to personal expressions of students from the period of strict isolation during lockdown due to Pandemic. This exercise enabled students to come to terms with their suppressed feelings of helplessness, isolation, fear, anxiety and mental health related issues which they faced during the Pandemic by freely expressing them through various modes of representation such as diagrams, abstract expressionism, texts, animation, digital and hand drawn drawings.
Learnings from this exercise prepared students to subsequently undertake their major studio design proposal to design a Museum of Pandemics through human history as well as the cemetery on an abandoned island – Poveglia near Venice.
