Lost Momo at Gautam Nagar
IMPRESSION OF A SPECIAL SPACE IN THE CITY

Brief :
To select an area / space in the city, then create an impression of the same through technique, colour and overall expression. The over all idea must be recongnisable, and relatable to the area. The exercise focuses on the expression and communication skills, interlinked with accuracy and precision in the making of overall graphical representation of that area. The core focus being the connection between IDEA- INTERPRETATION-EXECUTION as design.
 
Concept :
It is funny how students from different places studying in NIFT have their own interpretations for the area Gautam nagar. Gujjar diary, the vicinity for a lot of rooms on rent/hostels/p.g’s is synonymous with Gautam nagar including parts of Gulmohar Park and Yusuf Sarai. Interestingly, these places are not even a part of Gautam nagar. However with the students use of the name Gautam nagar for these places has in fact made it socially acceptable and understandable at the same time for people. 
 
Discussing students life, it is hilarious for the number of momo’s and paratha stall one might see around this place. At times, to eat something apart from these two seems like a luxury. Owing to the number of students living in the area, a lot of paratha and momo stalls have come up to substitute for the food.
 
Considering this concept of luxury, Our take on the map representation is in fact comical, where one of our momo (yes I said momo and not momo’s) has been lost. To aid the search of our momo, the viewver has been provided with a instruction pamphlet as to how the place Gautam nagar, which is not exactly Gautam nagar looks and feels. 
 
The pamphlet comprises of the technical drawings of the place and the map on the other hand aids the feel of the place. The map contains our personal take on the area like ‘creepy print out shop’ / ‘cheap stationary’ so on and so forth.’ In a way, it is more of a Nift’ian take on Gautam Nagar. The viewer would also be provided with a description of where last our momo was seen. Now it is completely upto him to figure out as to exactly where this one momo has gone in this supposedly called Gautam Nagar.
