Christian Nyampeta’s New Habits Prototypes

Can we conceive of an everyday that resembles a pilgrimage? Such life as a journey would be facilitated by a set of furnishings that model themselves into forms, following sustained use and dialogues. The sandals here offer structures for visiting. The sandals are a sensing organ between the body and the covered territories. The idea of wearing sandals induce a way of walking that is specific, responsive, sensitive and self-fashioning. The resulting gestures and attitudes could place the body in a commodious and evolving correspondence with the world.

The Post Office by Tagore

The Post Office – a play by Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941), shared by Natasha Ginwala at the first workshop, Iniva, London 2013.

The Post Office arrived as a text that offers an allegorical construction of the rural subject, and one that might have an interesting relationship to the broader projects of Tagore, at Santiniketan as well as Sriniketan. (Vivian Ziherl, Landings, workshop 3, Tagore Centre, London)
