The Post Graduate Diploma in Interior and Spatial Design September 2019 students of JD Institute of Fashion Technology, Bangalore, had put up a display on wall treatments using Tactile and Visual textures on February 3, 2020. The students were divided into groups and were provided with topics each which were to be expressed through the medium of art. Apart from the given topic they were also asked to incorporate elements of a natural calamity of their choice.
Texturing Walls provides carefully crafted and visually appealing rooms. It transforms a flat looking surface and gives it more depth. Creative treatments like tactile and visual textures help to create alternative wall treatments instead of limiting to painting or wallpapering. The students exhibited a versatile and creative display of their artwork.
‘Aura’ was a parallel between Indian classical dance and freestyle dance. Indian dance was expressed as a tactile texture with three different Classical dance forms such as Bharatanatyam, Kuchipudi and Odissi. The students used the Chidambaram Temple in the background with three dance figurines and adorned them with intricate details such as jewels and stuck stitched clothing related to the dance forms. Orange, a warm colour was selected for the background to determine fire. The Visual Texture was portrayed through a minimal pose of hip-hop dance form, painted in silver against a blue background which is a cool colour. This provided an overall cool and easy look according to the mood board. The wallpapers could be used in dance academies.
‘Rajasthan’s Heritage reflected the rich legacy and colourful culture of Rajasthan. ‘Rangi Chatriya’ was used to represent the tactile texture. On showcase were also block prints which could be incorporated as wall treatments in palace or resorts. For natural calamity, the students selected Bush fire and used abstract art to express the calamity. Blue symbolised the sky, orange was fire and brown was land.
‘Kama Couture’ made use of khadi and sustainable products to create a display on tactile texture. The wall paper was designed for a space like Khadi Bhandar. Abstract representation of the Charkha made with different fabrics and organic materials can be used as an installation for a shop like FabIndia. The visual texture consisted of acrylic paintings that represented the Volcanoes that erupted in Pompeii, whereas the hand represented the people’s plea for mercy.
The final group made a presentation inspired by the Bandipur Wildlife – save tigers. The tiger impressions could be used in lobby areas. For the tactile texture the students used sand to represent the draught condition and how the water symbolises the farmer’s tear while trying to save agriculture.
