Well, Now that I finished the Halloween Challenge I can get back to doing this.

One of the current exhibits at the Seattle Art Museum “City Dwellers: Contemporary Art From India” a selection of contemporary art from all around India. Most of it’s photography but all of it is a fascinating commentary about the fusion of progress and tradition in modern Indian society.

What has been the figure head of the Exhibit is “India Shining V” of “Ghandi with an iPod by Debanjan┬áRoy. I think what can be perceived as tacky (it’s virtually shellacked in a bright Red) was done on purpose to shock the viewer as a less than subtle commentary on the “India Shining” marketing slogan… ┬áit does grow on you after a while.
