Street artist Daku’s art installation on the Hussain Sagar lake in Hyderabad.
Indian Street artist, known as Daku has created a massive installation on the Hussain Sagar lake in Hyderabad with used plastic bottles. The art is a huge question mark that asks the question of the rampant use of plastic in our daily life.
St+art India Foundation, a Nonprofit Organization, who shared the video clip, aims to make streets more interactive through the medium of urban art festivals across India.
St+art said, “The installation was built with 300,000 recycled plastic bottles in the form a giant Question Mark (‘?’), ‘Why’ is an attempt to start conversations around the growing problem of plastic pollution all over the world.”
It also said, “What can citizens do about this problem? What can the governments and corporations do? Where do we go from here?”
These are all questions Daku hopes the viewers will ponder over. Through its scale and magnitude, the installation aims to encourage self-reflection on our current consumption habits, and hopefully lead to a search for solutions, beyond the question itself.
What do you think of the installation? What is the solution to the problem?
The “Why” is also powered by solar panels making it visible on the Hussain Sagar lake even at night.
The installation will be available for public viewing for a period of one month.
This project was made possible with the gracious support of the Government of Telangana, in partnership with India Design Forum, showboat Productions, Banyan Nation, Art@Telangana and Krishnakriti Foundation. It was inaugurated as part of Hyderabad Design Week.
St+art also thanked the entire team that put this project together, which include Pritish Srinivasan, Rishabh Jain, Akmal Syed, Bhaskar Reddy, Vijay Mudhiraj and Wasi Rahman.
