Delhi. This city is old: 2,500 years old. The city as a palimpsest, layers of accumulated history and memory. The city transforms. The water turns black. The trees turn yellow. The city turns a foggy green. And the poor turn to dust. Dialectics. The city is transforming to become more efficient and modern. A thought emerges. Selected artists from all the world over and India are invited to this city. In its transformative moment. To create art, in the everyday. Eight politically charged spaces are identified to be excavated and transformed by the artists. In heat climbing to 48 degrees Celsius, a reminder of our warming cities. The first public art ecology project in India is shaped, during ten days in December 2008. Cameras whirr and a film re-constructs the art. An attempt is made to record and transcend the imagery. Using snatches of artist conversation, splicing their politics and performance, a video re-presentation is sliced in between the chronicle of the disappearing city. Scattered written words unlock the larger narrative of the city and create a debate around the disabling of publics and public spaces. A film re-surfaces, nudges us to re-examine the latent citizenry. Urges to re-imagine the future of our cities, through the "eye glass" of public art.
