Sony Thellappilly Skariah

In her project FLOWING, Sony Thellappilly Skariah, explores the socio-spatial design concepts in virtual transformational festivalscapes for paricipants to experience moments of flow. The pandemic has forced the switch to a virtual macrocosm, and to find and experience collectiveness in newfound ways, many of them now becoming the new normal. Transformational Festivals also had to pause and translate to a virtual terrace to maintain their momentum and upend user quietude, a transition visualised in Sony Thellappilly Skariah’s project.
