Course: Impacting Public Spaces
Instructor: Amitabh Kumar
Done at Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology, Bangalore

An unusual take on the everyday pamphlet.
Public spaces are full of interesting visuals. For this project I chose to work with Pamphlets. Due to their monotonous style and content, these TO-LET pamphlets with rental information are no longer regarded as piece of public art and/or source of information but rather a piece of waste paper.
In the TO-LET series, I chose to work with one of the most overused content and replace it with instructions to create what I use pamphlets most for, i. e., create simple Origami works, while maintaining their original style.
This project served as a little social experiment where people’s reaction changed as they progressed through the pamphlet.
