Discovery through form began with discovering myself through a thorough analyzation of my design aesthetics, personal characteristics, etc. This exercise will lead me to find a trigger point, an area that can possibly intrigue me enough to get inspired and design on its basis. To convey this idea we further took assistance of primary and secondary images along with a mood board which would harbor the essence of the concept. Forms were developed on the basis of the concept generated. I personally prefer abstractions thus I used abstract forms to covey my story. These form undergo a process of multiplication, addition, subtraction and division to amplify its aesthetic before landing as a helping hand in designing an accessory in the form of its silhouette, print, design, etc.
All my life I have always tried to “perfect” all things I’m part of, the constant ringing of alarm in my head wouldn’t let me be otherwise. Well, most of the time I manage to do so, I manage to cater to every aspect of every perspective that needs mending. But now I want to un-hear the alarm, or maybe snooze for a while till I catch my breath back and learn where to stop before I indulge in this monotonous cycle of overdoing the already done and filtering the pre-filtered. This will leave an open loop, a room for alteration, extension and addition yet maintaining originality and a raw version of the idea intact. Thus, I reject perfection.
Here, the images that I have chosen are from a complete distinct perspective. Minimalistic, in process, taking its natural path and raw are the characteristics that led me to connect to them. The image of the backstage of a theatre talks about how a character dresses, or perfects him/herself to fit the part, while the image where the colors are interacting talks about the natural course that two colors take when placed next to each other without an additional fine tuning.
When I begin working on any project, the ‘full stop’ is the stage where I want to reach, though in the process I indulge in this monotonous cycle of overdoing the already done and filtering the pre-filtered. Thus, I want to learn where to put a full stop. This will leave an open loop, a room for alteration, extension and addition yet maintaining originality and a raw version of the idea/design intact.
