The Sunaparanta Goa Center for the Arts hosted a talk and presentation by new media artist Nandita Kumar titled
Sounding the Quintessential: environmental science and art-tech.
Nandita Kumar presents her process of re-imagining conventional approaches to environmental sustainability. In her art, she democratizes data and explores how creative processes can activate learning, environmental protection and also social development.
As part of his work for our current exhibition
Stories, the installation of Kumar,
From paradigm to paradigm in bionic time, represents a newspaper which comments on facts ill-informed by public individuals about the environment. The statements are coded as âHaiku poems,â which form the backbone of a random musical composition generated by a punch piano.
Nandita Kumar is a new media artist who works at the intersection of art, environmental science, technology and community to create interactive installations. Its interest is to propel the human race towards sustainable development, which focuses not only on environmental protection but also social development. It uses technology as if it were a natural element in a large ecosystem. His works are hybrids, simultaneously rooted in human nature while a pervasive electronic layer is seamlessly integrated.
