The Five Senses and Design
Design runs right through art, craft, and architecture and is the common denominator. It is everywhere, in made and unmade objects, whether natural or hewn by the human hand. Craft is the instrument that allows this vision to be completed. Art is also an intellectual pursuit and concepts fall under art.
Architecture is an umbrella under which these elements are fitted in. They are all expressions of human creativity, pleasing to all our senses that evoke emotions in us for their beauty, intricate and varied design, splendor, and fine workmanship.
India is a country with a wealth of culture and heritage- both tangible and intangible. It is a country where the five senses of sight, smell, sound, taste and touch are celebrated in every part of this composite, syncretic and multi-cultural sub-continent. Our recorded and oral histories of five millennia are replete with countless accounts of these celebrations.
TOI Design X will be a themed and microcosmic celebration of the FIVE SENSES through visual displays of the best of Indian design, Indian Art and Indian Crafts; of the aromas of its perfumes, unguents, Attar (Indian perfume) and its aromatic spices; its sounds; and through the taste of its cuisines; and its various tactile experiences.
