Girls – I have been craxy busy with trying to complete a project with Microsoft Research. Its called World Digital Heritage and I am directing 2 marquee narratives for it. One on Ladakh and one on Hampi. Its all consuming. Between this consultancy gig and Jaaga, I have no bandwidth left.
Here’s what I think would end up happening. The two of you will exhibit at Jaaga, which has been the most important art project I have been on this last year. I have always thought of Jaaga as a living installation that Freeman and I started, and Kiran and tons of ppl continue in ways that are entirely personal to them.
Perhaps, this is what it will end up being my contribution to this exhibition.
I know that you girls will be upset and think I am copping out – but really, my timeline is so incredibly tight, and I already feel too much pressure and stress – that I don’t think I can physically and mentally take on another, new trip-out.
If I finish this MS work (which I completely doubt), and there is some amount of time, then potentially I could put together the drawings I made for the wedding and figure out how best to make something of it. But this is not something that currently I can promise on making happen.
Am fully on board on this blog, thinking and commenting all along…that is definite. And speaking of which, we really need to rope in someone, or commission someone to start working with us on the design of the e-catalog as well as the presentation of the blog and its content. Any ideas?
