‘If I Were Sky, If I Were Story’

‘If I Were Sky, If I Were Story’ explores the art of storytelling and visual narratives in both fictional and non-fictional genres. The students created illustrated books, graphic novels and artefacts.

Their projects have been conceptualized while exploring unfamiliar spaces, experiences and people. Each story navigates through a larger socio-political, economic or cultural system, while bringing in fresh perspectives

Students have explored the boundaries of literary and artistic expression. There are artistic works rooted in poetic expression, vivid narratives that stem from experiences in the Andamans and Goa; and even a whimsical book that explores the signs and signages around Bangalore.

As far-reaching as the stories are in their imagination, they also have larger narratives such as gender neutrality or ecological intelligence running through them.
