ROHAN TAPA

EU.PNEA + IN VISIBLE

The installation is a combination of two projects in order to create an image of a global system that is blinded by consumption, even in a place as pristine as Nepal.
EU.PNEA is a work regarding the air pollution by a multinational corporation (Carlsberg) in Nepal. Situated at the heart of a small farming village, the brewery has put the local community and the natural environment at great risk. In protest, I present a visual study based on a air pollution sample collected on a blank sheet of paper within a period of 28 days.
As for IN VISIBLE, I use braille and blur on the images to bridge the gap between the visually impaired and sighted to raise perceptual awareness. While the blur limits visual interpretation, the braille gives a tactile expression to the images. Similarly there is a blur in the text since the braille breaks on black ink, giving a tactile description of the image through reference of color for the visually impaired. The texts in braille are words used in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
