What if the most valued product/service in the world became something you didn’t use or had foreseen any use for yourself. That’s the first thought that came to my mind, when I heard that Facebook had bought Whatsapp, a cross platform instant messaging service*(thats how Wikipedia described it), for a whopping $19 billion. The fact that I didn’t use this particular “Mobile App”, made me question my own importance and relevance as a contributor to the world economy. I thought that I must have passed my sell by date as a potential target, or revenue creator for the corporations, and my need to exist was surely in question. My insecurity in regards to this situation was further justified, when I came to understand that the prevailing reason for this purchase was, that Facebook became worried about losing its younger user base. In danger of being deemed old & worthless, I downloaded Whatsapp, but it didn’t make me feel, any younger or any more valuable. Setting aside my personal anxieties, and looking at this from a more general perspective, it worth considering how this purchase in the larger scheme of technological evolution, would affect humanity as a whole, and the way […]

… and the evolution of the “Maldivian Dream” We have been led to believe that economic success has always been dictated by the scale of the population you are able to reach. This is applicable at every level, from individual to companies to countries. Within an individual level, trading your surplus produce, with your neighbors, was what shaped the conventional economic models that our livelihood is based on, built around the idea of specialization and division of labor. The individual evolved from subsistence livelihood, and formed companies or corporations, extending the scale of production, and with it, the need to reach further geographically, hence the beginning of what we now know as the industrial revolution. Large volume of people were required to concentrate within close proximity to reduce the cost of production, as well as develop the necessary homogenous markets for what was being produced, in order that wealth can be amassed in volume. Turn of the 20th Century saw centralization of mass populous groups into clusters and the formation of standardized urban spaces, more familiarly known as cities. – See more at: topysaeed.com

  About this presentation Sometimes you have to ignore the brief, says renowned designer and artist Paula Scher. With a dry wit, Scher takes us behind-the-scenes on four landmark projects — from revamping MoMA’s identity to reinvigorating a Pittsburgh neighborhood through design — to illustrate how asking questions, pushing into uncharted territory, and doing something you’ve never done before leads to great work.

The Cyprea photography installations (proposal) Boardroom and Directors rooms DUHA: forenoon a series of photographs inspired by the immediate existence between life and death. In this series, ‘existence’ is explored by the transformation that light goes through: from the time it enters the camera, until it leaves behind the image that makes the history of its life. What is left, eventually, are the markings made by light on the back of the camera: an image that is the result of the life that light has lived, on its journey from the outside world, through the camera, to the eventual end of its existence. In this context, an image is made equal or interpreted as the transformation that life takes, from conception till its known death. In this photo series, I will explore the state of being alive, very simply, by replacing life with light The home-made pinhole camera will act as a detrimental tool enabling the viewer to imagine the process. These images made with a pinhole camera gives a soft image, with a vivid color range. The soft focused images evoke a sense of calm, enabling the eye to move over a large surface of the image. The large […]
