Hi, I am Aajwanthi.K.Baradwaj and I study interdisciplinary communication design at Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology, Bangalore.
This blog documents my final diploma project where I am working with a school in C.K.Pura (an area highly affected by fluorosis due to fluoride being endemic in their ground water) in Pavagada taluk to engage children in a participatory mode to address the idea of water and sanitation by introducing them to appropriate technology. I am hoping to build some devices/toys with them do that they can carry this forward and experiment with it in the different environments they are exposed to. Behavioural change through these activities is also something I am looking at. Do watch this space the next 4 months if you are interested in design within a social and ecological context and any comments or feedback is most welcome.
