Creative Disturbance

'அ' முதல் அமெரிக்காவரை வரிசையில் தங்கள் அனுபவங்களைப் பற்றி தொடர்ந்து உரையாடுகிறார்கள் கௌதம் ஷர்மா மற்றும் ஆதவன் சிபி. அமெரிக்கா வந்து இறங்கும் இந்திய மாணவர்கள், அதிலும் பெரும்பாலும் முதல்முறை வருகிறவர்கள், அன்றாட அமெரிக்க வாழ்க்கைமுறைக்கு அனுசரித்துப் போவதில் ஒரேவிதமான குழப்பங்களைத்தான் சந்திக்கிறார்கள். அது சாலையைக் கடப்பதாக இருக்கலாம்; நகரத்தில் பயணிப்பதாக இருக்கலாம்; அவை நம்நாட்டு நடைமுறைக்கு முற்றிலும் மாறுபட்டதாவே இருக்கிறது. இந்த தனிமையான காலகட்டத்தைக் கடந்து இது எனக்கு பழக்கமான ஊர் என்ற உணர்வு வருவதற்கு ஒரே வழி அல்லது மிகச்சிறந்த வழி நமக்கு முன்னால் வந்து இங்கே நீச்சல் அடித்துக் கொண்டிருக்கிறார்களே சக இந்திய மாணவர்கள், அவர்களோடு கலாச்சார நிகழ்வுகளில் கலந்து உற்சாகமாக பழகுவதுதான். புது நாட்டில் புது ஊரில் அவனவன் எப்படியெப்படி சொதப்பினான் என்று ஆளுக்கொரு திரைக்கதை வைத்திருப்பான்; அந்த சுவாரஸ்யமான கதைகளைக் கேட்டால் போதும். ஆறுமாத ஞானத்தை / பட்டறிவை அல்லல்படாமலேயே அடைந்துவிடலாம்.

To kick start an upcoming disturbance, Roger Malina and Oskar Olsson sit down with the host himself. Alen Agaronov is a doctoral student at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health majoring in Social & Behavioral Science with a secondary field in Critical Media Practice. In this episode Alen explains how he has grown an unhealthy obsession with the health benefits of the so-called Mediterranean Diet – particularly the scientists who were behind its discovery. Like a glass of wine, our discuss pours into tangential topics including Alen’s experience with the bureaucracies and office politics of doctoral life, Roger’s points about art and science, and the co-host's odd development of non-human-targeted media. [Original Recording: July 8, 2019]

Volker M. Welter is an architectural historian whose specializes in modern architecture from the 19th century onwards. Working mainly on Californian, British, and German, but also current architecture, his research centers on domestic architecture, patronage, histories of modernist, revival styles, and sustainable architecture, and historiography of modern architecture. The subject matter of his research usually emerge from his ongoing work in archives where the unordered adjacencies of archival sources often inspire new projects. He is interested in the ways architecture intersects on a smaller scale with individual human lives and on a larger scale with the environment. His work combines detailed architectural historical analysis with biographical research and, when appropriate, philosophical, sociological and psychological (theories of spatial perception) thought contemporary to a research project’s focus.Prof. Welter has received grants and fellowships from the Getty Grant Program, the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, and the Centre Canadien d'Architecture, Montreal. Following on from Biopolis: Patrick Geddes and the City of Life (Cambridge, MA, 2002), he continues publishing on the Scotsman’s theories of the city. His book Ernst L. Freud, Architect: The Case of the Modern Bourgeois Home (Oxford, 2012) reintroduced the architect son of Sigmund Freud into the history of European architectural modernism. He is working on book on the patronage of mid-20th century domestic American architecture, compiling a history of the concept of Umwelt in relation to architecture, and researches how the battlefields of the Great War influenced the emergence of European architectural modernism in the 1920s.

Farshid Kazemi and Siying Duan discuss their mutual interest in shadow-theatre and the magic lantern as early precursors to the art of the cinema. The conversation begins with how the use of shadow-puppetry in Plato's allegory of the Cave and the Persian philosopher and poet Omar Khayyam's reference to the magic lantern in the 11th century functioned as a technology to think about the ontological structure of the world. The origins of cinema is discussed in light of the shadow-play in India, China and Iran and in light of magic, shamanism, and the evocation of the spirit of the dead. Fascinating aspects of the phenomenon of shadows are discussed in Chinese and Persian and Shi'i-Islamic thought. The story of the origin of Chinese shadow-play is mentioned and finally; how the cinema was received in light of indigenous traditions of the shadow-play and the magic lantern within Chinese and Iranian culture at the turn of the last century.
