India Journal 1

Day 2.

This video clip portrayed a significant moment to the start of my trip.  On our ride to Malavli I was observing the local area’s of Mumbai outside and decided to capture these moments by recording videos.  Seeing the run down buildings, the litter piled everywhere and people sleeping on the ground various thoughts were going through my head: India is a dirty and unpleasant place. Not to mention before this trip many people told me that India was not clean and not an ideal place to visit however, all of a sudden while I was looking out my window a beautiful bird flew by as I was recording a section of the city.  From that instant, that one bird that gracefully flew next to me changed my first impressions and my perspective of India. I then realized that India was not an unpleasant place but rather a completely different culture with many unique kinds of beauty that we don’t typically witness. With an open mind, we can capture new perspectives that are unparalleled to what we witness in western culture.

Hi, I am Arielle Bourret-Klein My major is sculpture and installation with a minor in integrated media. I am extremely excited and looking forward to the experience and the new knowledge I will be learning in India. I love being part of a community and being invited to be part of another is a great honour.

I hope this trip will open new possibilities to my practice by learning how to think as a designer and by learning from the culture.
