A Day in the Life -sketchbook project page 21 color pencils
I always wonder how and who came up with original recipes and cooking methods for various dishes. How and who concocted the very first delicacies? or the herbal remedies? The cough syrup herbal remedy that my aunt made for me was a wonderfully powerful one that relieved me of my incessant hacking during my trip to India in January. I do hope that these recipes and knowledge don't get lost as the world moves towards new and improved technology.
Speaking of innovations and creations, I watched TED fellow Aparana Rao talk about her unique interactive art projects that are steeped in surprising, playful and humorous ideas. Check it out and see why I want one of her high tech art installation 'shy pygmies' ! I am totally fascinated by her mix of art and technology - her fun 'uncle phone', delightful 'drunken man', the intimidating expanding cube, and cute tired oil blob. Actually I am in awe of her imagination and innovation! What a wonderful way to infuse art with 'humanity' that begs one to respond and interact.
