Pakistan's installation, Daalaan, is a collaboratively designed abstract 'playground' that breaks down social barriers and invites interaction between strangers. Taking the simplicities of our childhoods as a reference, the Pakistani team created a playroom 'where imagination has no bounds', to encourage people to meet through play and transport them back to a time when they were unhindered by adult anxieties. They hope their playful installation - which features sheesham wood objects, Lattoo Stools (spinning tops), hand-drawn artworks and screen prints made using natural henna dyes - will encourage people to converse and share ideas with open minds.
This installation was designed and created by Salman Jawed, Ali S Hussain, Faiza Adamjee, Hina Fancy,Zaid Hameed, Mustafa Mehdi. It was curated by Coalesce Design Studio; Salman Jawed , and supported by Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture; Coalesce Design Studio.
