Adrift is a free-flowing visual allegory of personified ‘space’ that unravels spatially, temporally and graphically through the collective efforts of multiple storytellers. It is a story with a life of its own. Conceived as a social experiment that fuses the art of doodling, drawing and graphic novels, it explores the interactive nature of storytelling.
In this workshop, Chitra will introduce the idea and methods of using allegory in storytelling, graphic or otherwise, and will go on to involve the participants as characters in her narrative, Adrift. Participants will collaboratively work towards one possible resolution of the narrative presented to them.
Chitra is an architect turned communication designer. She is also the creative founder of Mographies, an independent, organic, collaborative,and creative practice that specializes in design thinking and visual storytelling across media/ channels. She is a design educator, and currently a visiting faculty at the School of Design, Ambedkar University. Chitra completed her Masters in Design (Visual Communication) at IIT, Bombay.
