Rhythms of Rai
Our video wanted to focus on how every person lives and perceives the world uniquely, even in our individual lives and routines, we see that each person is connected to everyone else. We all eat, work, laugh, play and rest, and our video focuses on how the differences in people's routines can ultimately be broken down and recombined to form one cohesive day, this symbolising the unity we share.
This film represents how music sends people into another dimension. Here we can see how people are engaging in mundane activities but because a tune is stuck in their head, they start grooving and enter a dream like state, until the music stops and they go back to everyday life.
About the various connotations of what it means to fall- falling in love, falling apart, falling back into the same patterns
Exploring the topic of space, our film works with different spaces on campus. It attempts to explore how we move and interact differently with different spaces we find ourselves in everyday at Ashoka.
