  4. 4. *Space Time ExperienceSpace-time experience was my masters thesis project at the I.I.TGuwahati. It studied theories that evolve from collision ofspace and time, formed through interaction of various newdimensions of architecture and cinema, and proposed amethodology generated from theoretically built observationsand formulated assumptions.Spatialization of Time – Representation in the form ofNarrativesBased on the observations from the research, four hypotheseswere formulated, that were suggested explanations and agroup of theories talking about the nature of space-time,spatiotemporal conditions and experiences. These wereillustrated and visualized to get certain scenarios, which werein the form of narratives.Dynamization of Space – Simulation to form an ExperienceReproduction of selected narratives were experimented withreflection of a physical setup for their respective spaces. Thusthe hypothesis formulated earlier provided data for visualizingthese narratives, which were then simulated to form a multi-sensory experience.Hypotheses and experiments were based on followingdomains:Television SpacesGame SpacesPerception of Time in Space * Apoorv Tomar - Portfolio 09/2011

  11. 11. *Scenography - NDT V Gadget GuruDesign of the NDTV Good Times Gadget Guru Set at the NewDelhi Studio produced at Anagram ArchitectsThe design builds on the subject of space and interaction,using media as a form of expression. Developed within thefinancial and logistic concerns, the form and aesthetics weredetermined within the design parameters set by a distinct andwell-defined activity. Focus was also to brace the lightings andcolors on the venue. The design evolved from idea of a cyber-pod creating a visual enclosure within the constructed space. * Apoorv Tomar - Portfolio 09/2011

Among few reasons of this design beingpreferred over the previous one, cost chop-down was a majorrationale. With an altered approach, the design of this newsdesk aimed at a much more resolute and uncomplicatedstructure. Two more separate sections were recessed out of thepacked full studio space along with the main news desk.Details of the news desk were structured with the optimal useof materials. * Apoorv Tomar - Portfolio 09/2011

  16. 16. *Montage - Nothing of Consequence to be Responsible forThis short video ’Nothing of Consequence to be Responsible Abstractfor’ was a second semester design project at the Departmentof Design, I.I.T. Guwahati. It was this tendency with which the character in this fiction is openly and forcibly brought to the stage from his everydayThe video was designed on a realistic approach in creating a life. Where in, he seemed to lose life and colour along with hissemi-fictional plot around a past middle aged inhabitant of a ideal past. Here his longing transcends a passing moment, mayvillage by the river Brahmaputra. The idea of this project was be in his dreams while he is asleep. But before this passingto show a link between the traditional beliefs of Assamese moment could be accepted, he is accidently dragged into arural culture and the unnoticed everyday heroic deeds of the situation where he is himself held responsible for a reasonpeople. which is not only alien to him but also finds him in an anxious state of mind. Now no comfort avails anymore and as he triesWith the groundwork of a comparative study, in relation to to understand the situation, he is unavoidably affected by it. Indistinctive works done by film makers and novelists, an the course of time he is again acquainted with the similarunderstanding of their sense and approach gave essential passing moment, however this time he gets absorbed withinbrain-waves for choosing the medium and creating a narrative. the reality and meets up to its highest consequence.The outcome intended to draw-in an intensified sense oftemporality in the play, creating a factual experience of thegenuine time spent on respective events. The video can also beviewed as an amalgamation of left out simultaneous spaces inthe montage and the odds of deliberate sense of time passingthrough them. * Apoorv Tomar - Portfolio 09/2011

  19. 19. *Montage - Not Equal To‘Not equal to’ is a self initiated photographic montage. Thiswas made to explore the possibilities of sequential assortmentand study the form of a graphic novel.In the process I also learned about the juxtapositioning ofimages, and how different meanings can be created out ofaltered arrangement of pictures. Through this montage, I wasable to experiment and learn how to communicate ideaswithin a condensed format. * Apoorv Tomar - Portfolio 09/2011

  21. 21. *Montage - Identity TheftIdentity Theft is a self initiated stop-motion which was anoutcome of a casual experiment carried out in a days time.The idea was to communicate the issue of identity fraud, goingalong with a symbolic approach, indulging in the version ofthe term coined in 1964, that was actually considered as amisnomer because it is not literally possible to steal an identityas such. Though primarily what I intended to commit, wassolely a representational form in order to get across the idea. * Apoorv Tomar - Portfolio 09/2011

  26. 26. * Print Design - The Space and TimeSelf-published book ‘The Space and Time’ as graduation This exercise was a part of New Media Studies course, at theresearch piece for my M.Des at I.I.T. Guwahati. I took a visual Department of Design, where extensive use of culturaland discontinuous approach as a response to my interface was studied as a medium having a non-linear history.understanding of the subject. Other than concentrating on the The idea of experimenting with this medium was in order tocontent, which was mainly dealing with the premises of my understand the interface as a n act, treating interactiondissertation, the main idea was to go beyond a mere visual through the book as an event. The experiment also dealt withrepresentation of interesting thoughts and ideas, and conjoin the future of information, which in this case being ‘space-message with the medium itself. Hence the flow, design and time’, taken as a theme, my aim was to see how thissequence of the book evolved from the idea of understanding information can be aesthetized with the dominance of media.the subject space and time separately, and eventually arrivingto the notion of simultaneity in Space-Time.The narrative of the book was given a discontinuous orderwhere the story is divided into parts, without a conventionalexplanation through chapters. But instead, the book wasdivided into three relative events that consisted of space andtime starting simultaneously from either sides of the book, andthe notion of space-time in between. With this book I intendto suggest the reader, how the movement through time inconsuming the content becomes a relative interpretation ofyour thoughts when you are not directed to any sequentialpattern or flow, while grasping a diverse topic such as space-time. The time is quantized. This way you are more immersedwithin the subject, creating your own narrative unsuspected inthe approach. * Apoorv Tomar - Portfolio 09/2011

Forever Tourists, ball point pen, 11 X 7.9”, June 2010To all those happy tourists - somewhere below the top of that hill, those who think they would stay there forever and wished if they had a small hut at the top, isolatedfrom the rest of the world. Along with that beautiful river flowing in their backyard, surrounded with those empty fields... I wish they suffer for their life. I wish sickness,maltreatment and agonizing journey back to their puppet shows. I have no sympathy for them, I wish torture at every breathtaking site they visit. I wish they are rippedout of their body and flow through the free sketch into the landscape forever. Forever Tourists. * Apoorv Tomar - Portfolio 09/2011

  43. 43. *Illustrations - Geometry Led Form StudyForm Study exercise was a working studio course at theDepartment of Design, I.I.T. Guwahati, carried out to expandour understanding of design theory as it relates to the threedimensional world.Working primarily in paper and file board, in this exercise weexplored concepts of modularity, sequence, series, relief,contour, structure and symmetry. We also examined thefunction of space, volume, mass, plane, and line. Sculpturalissues were explored through the solution of design problems.The main emphasis of this course was the development ofcritical thinking skills as they apply to three dimensional artforms and to help us gain a deeper understanding of visual art. * Apoorv Tomar - Portfolio 09/2011
