The Lost Art - "The Art of Imperfect Progress" by Sangeeta Babani is a massive installation of 18ft in height made ith 85,000 metal bottle caps, hand painted and articulately designed to give it a larger than life impression. The art installation promises to take you on a trip down memory lane letting you revive the memories of technology that we grew up on but are insignificant today. Her work pays homage to the good old days and to the things which may not seem cutting-edge today, but we definitely shouldn’t discount their place in history as a forerunner for all of the technology that wouldn’t exist today without its dinosaur ancestry.
If we were to actually compare the way we live today and how life was a few years back, we will definitely notice how much technology has transformed our lives. It has given us a lot of freedom and also a lot of ways to save on resources and time but we do not ever think of what we are losing out.
Commenting on the same Sangeeta says, “Studies reveal that today physiological changes are occurring in humans who drink deeply from the technological well. As computers and the Internet become more and more ubiquitous, our brains are changing to compensate for the change in reading and memory habits. So the question we have to ask ourselves is...Is technology truly evolving us?”
