Madhu D @ CitySpinning: walking through change and resistance

Madhu D.

Madhu .D was away from Bangalore for six months and when he returned he couldn’t recognize his city. “The accelerated change and erasures are inevitable here, the city seems like a construction site, a battle ground of change and resistance, loss and hope. The unplanned chaos is unnerving; the change in landscape has left us with only real estate as a promise for the future. This is visual response to the absurdity of a city that is at siege, the moaning of loss and the mocking of a city that seems to be waking up late and has been caught napping.”

He has been in town for a few weeks and I met him co-incidentally near the Vishweshwarya Science Museum and we got talking. He described the following project to me and I invited him to do it as part of CitySpinning and Openspace India’s engagement with Bangalore city.
