A self deprecating look at our own work.
'We F*cked Up' is a talk compiled by Ayaz Basrai, with an intent to encourage people to stop, and take a self-deprecating look at their own work. Presented by Asian Paints Colour Next 2017 and Design Fabric. Asian Paints had come to us with a brief for pushing out their forecasted colour of the year - teal blue.
Ayaz talked about everything from making mistakes on some of his initial poster projects, to making it mandatory to make mistakes as a part of a developing brief for the newer projects. The talk then segued into a workshop about the water bodies around us and how we feel about them.
I went around the whole city and collected water samples to be tested by a government recognised lab. The results were for people to see and react to it with a personal artwork. The whole idea was to send them home with a lot of much-needed perspective.
After the participants had finished their artworks, I worked around retrofitting laser cut pieces of their artworks onto a pre-fabricated structure. This installation is currently residing at Asian Paints' Head Office in Mumbai, Maharashtra.
