Indian Artist Uses Sunlight To Project Phrases Exploring Theories of Time Onto The Street

Daku is an Indian graffiti artist from Delhi who is known for his typographic street art installations, criticizing consumerism and various social issues. For his latest project, he cooperated with an Indian non-profit organization St+art India and created a mesmerizing installation called ‘Theory Of Time’ in Panjim, Goa.

This temporary art installation utilizes sunlight to cast shadows of letters across on the street, displaying a message about the passing of time. The words “Time works wonders. Time moves. Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind. Time fades. Time is an illusion” are cast when the sun is in zenith and St+art India describe the piece as a “multifaceted gameful interpretation of time itself, that gives no answers but posits new questions.”

Check out Daku’s new art piece in the gallery below!

Woman Wears Bizarre Costumes While Walking Her Dog During The Quarantine And He Looks Embarrassed (8 Pics)

Dancer Clare Meardon from West Cornwall in the UK has been dressing up in different jaw-dropping costumes to walk her dog Hendrix. She’s been doing this since the start of April after her friend dared her to mix it up and step outside in unusual clothes. Now, Clare’s making all of us smile with video clips filmed by her husband Aidan.

Some of the costumes that the 40-year-old dancer has tried out include dressing up as a ballerina, a masked superhero with a cape, and even a unicorn. Honestly, we can’t wait to see what she’ll come up with next! Clare told Bored Panda that she didn’t expect her costumes to be so popular. “It started off as just a way of making my friends laugh as some were having a tough time. It was all just a silly bit of fun!” Scroll down for the rest of our interview with the dancer.

Clare isn’t the only Brit to dress up in fancy costumes when going outside. Check out Bored Panda’s previous posts about a postman, as well as one former Royal Marinewho did the same to cheer up their neighbors.

We were interested to find out what costumes Clare has planned for this week. “A ‘walker’ never gives away her secrets!” she joked before adding that she’s not sure yet. “I have a ‘normal walk’ with my husband in the morning and we decide on a theme and I go from there!”

Clare also added that the walks she does in costumes happen right outside their house, so it’s fully in line with government guidelines.

The dancer also had some great advice about keeping physically and mentally fit during lockdown.

“Keep it light. Don’t take life too seriously. Get up and do it, you’ll feel better if you do something physical or productive as soon as you get up. Even 10 minutes of light exercise first thing will boost your mood and endorphins and make you have a better day.”

She added: “We are all responsible for our own health and well-being, we are just here to give you a helping hand along the way. We are posting short clips and doing live workouts on our Facebook and Instagram, whether you want a 1-minute plank or a full hour of Pilates, dance, stretching or fitness, we have it all. You deserve to feel amazing. All our workouts and videos are being done for free. We just want to share some fun and fitness for all during this difficult time.”

“Because I run a dance school, I have a lot of costumes which I make myself,” Clare told Caters News. “We were meant to be having a show in July, so I’d taken them all home to fix ahead of that. I was mending the Eve costume, and because it’s a stretch fabric it is actually much easier to work with while you are wearing it, so I put it on.”

She said that was the moment that she realized that this could be a great funny photo opportunity. When she sent the photo to her friends, one of them dared her to go for a walk dressed like that.

“When she said that, how could I not? After I posted the first clip online, people said watching it was the highlight of their day and I realized just how much of a bad time a lot of people must be having at the moment and how everyone needed something to laugh about.”

So she decided to keep things going. “So the next day, I dressed as a ballerina and walked along the pavement in my pointed shoes. The hype just built and built from there to post a new video each day!”

Clare, who runs the Savvy Studios in Hayle, revealed that she wants to make people laugh and smile while they’re all stuck at home because of the lockdown. “Laughter is the most important medicine for everyone, now more than ever. For me, mental health is as important as physical health. You can have a fantastically fit body, but if your head is full of negativity, you aren’t healthy.”

The dancer believes that each of the characters that she dresses up as represents a part of her personality or how she’s feeling on that particular day. “The superhero costume came from a desire to ‘be fierce’ and remind women they can be whoever they want to be—they can be sexy and sassy and funny and ridiculous all at once.”

Here’s how some people reacted when they saw Clare’s photos
