A project made in collaboration with the Railway Design Center, India for the exhibition 'Time Capsules'.
The brief of this project was to create an exhibit on one's own personal memory, mine being a take on the Mumbai Local trains and the various stories it had presented to me as I grew up.
The locals have seamlessly been a part of my life from a very young age. Traveling back and forth in the locals made me fall in love with this little journey and now, I need no reason.
Beyond the crowd, the threat of the smelly armpits, the fights for the window seat, and being pushed over several amounts of times, you would meet and experience the lives of other people, people you'd never meet otherwise.
ELEMENTS OF THE SPACE /
The space constraint to curate the memory was limited to 2x2 meters per exhibit.
The primary idea was to create the essence of the Mumbai locals; the hustle and the crowd
Major elements needed to recreate the setting were, the pole at the entrance, windows and a cramped up seat adjacent to it
Representing and adding humans through abstract forms brought in the interactive elements
