Enchantment along the Southern Highway: Psychogeography and the Mysticism of Ordinary Experience

Artist: Carl Adam Lindquist
Participants: Aarushi Kakkar / Akanksh Gupta / Ansh Gangey / Dakshmeet singh / Diya Thomas Palathinkal / Hitanshi Prashant Thakkar / Ira Nambiar / Jia bevli / Kanak agarwal / Karshima Catherine jiwanmall / Kuksh jain / Mallika nethra Sreenivasan / Meera Praveen / Rachelle Magdaline Noronha / Sameeraj Dronamraju / Savers aranya / Shreya Ann Mathew / Shubh R Wadhwa / Sitara Maria Philip / Ube

The workshop consists of several individual and group projects that culminate in a group public art initiative. Throughout the duration of the workshop, the participants explore how arts, history, natural and cultural heritage, geography, psychology, meditation, self-reflection, mysticism, observation skills, and the roots of creativity all blend to form a psychogeography for creative practitioners in all media. These explorations aim for the psychogeography’s activist roots to emerge and take on vibrant and constructive forms with a range of focuses, including public art, street animals, greenery, ekistics, architecture, and human well-being. Using Combinatory Play techniques, the project aims to inspire participants to enhance their imaginative abilities, sharpen their observational powers, and develop their skills in creative ideation and production.
