THE GITA-GOVINDA EXPERIENCE
Indira Gandhi National Center for the Arts, 1997
The Gita-Govinda is a 12th century erotic-spiritual love poem expressed in the traditional ‘multi’-media of painting, music and dance, which have been developed in Indian culture for over eight centuries. The form of the exhibit (as a collection of multimedia kiosks) mirrors the interrelations among multiple dimensions and media of the Gita-Govinda. In order to understand the ‘whole’ of the poem, people travel from one kiosk to another exploring interconnections between the media of text, visual image, song and dance performance.
This project brought the footprints of multimedia computing to India (1993-7).
Work realized as part of Xerox PARC and Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts, New Delhi collaboration.
