Goal: To communicate the existence and functioning of caste system in India through different media and idea explorations
Audience: Americans, 20+
Media: Animation + Print + Video + Web
In today’s times, caste based discriminationis prevalent in two forms- positive and negative. To an American, it soundssimilar to racism in their country. But it is different. The major differencebeing that caste is a religious concept based on occupation and race is basedon color. Caste based discrimination is way too complicated if compared toracism. The confounding nature is because of the role religions and economyplay in encouraging caste discrimination. Comparison between racism and castesystem is a topic that is being discussed globally now a days.
Avariety of castes exist, the number of which is uncountable. Negativediscrimination exists in rural areas where people need a relief from oppressionand positive discrimination co-exists in cities where there is relatively lessneed of such measures. The result from my research was a series of explorationsin different media like animation, video and web.
