Consequential Modernity

Posted in Books by Nithin

This publication was created for a brief set by the Royal College of Art. To accomplish the brief I was to investigate a 'hidden history' within a specific place and then create a 24 page illustrated publication that elaborated its 'hidden history' to a wider audience. The brief detailed that there be investigations conducted on the site choosen. These included site visits, personal testimonials and working drawings and or primary research created on site. The cumilation of which was compiled, illustrated and then designed into a 'history book' of sorts. I choose to do the project on the bead-making industry in Khambhat in India. This is a dying Industry and one that I found situated itself rather delicately into the brief constraints.
