Enjoying any form of art sounds implausible to a large number of people who have never experienced art physically, or found an opportunity to build a relationship. From an artist’s perspective, pursuing any form of art as their means of livelihood for sustenance is a far-fetched dream.
Entertainers, dancers, musicians or street artists perform individually in open public spaces. They have enabled the option of an exclusive form of interaction for the audience by offering art as an experience. They have challenged the antiquated form of displaying art only in theatres by their performance. Their reach is bound by lack of infrastructural support on performance locations or the disengagement of spectators with art.
Can we as designers suggest an alternative to house such artists by giving them an open platform to explore their potential? Can this intervention help re-establish the disconnect of people with art?
Brief: The participants have to design a portable structural device for artists that can be placed in any public realm in context with the city conceived from the design of a Bioscope that was used as a portable cinema theatre.
