EVERYDAY STORIES is a section for one-min videos from YOUR street, YOUR neighbourhood! In his book 'Ways of Seeing' John Berger says "The relation between what we see and what we know is never settled. Each evening we see the sunset. We know that the earth is turning away from it. Yet the knowledge, the explanation, never quite fits the sight." In the context of the Indian street corner, we SEE "chaos", we KNOW that some of it are "culture" - the chai stall, the roadside shrine, the tree worship, the collective newspaper reading, the banana leaf seller during Sankranti. The relation between what we see and what we know is never settled.
Everyday Stories are a set of films depicting simple observations about public space-related activities. These are activities that many of us have observed or sometimes engaged in ourselves and yet paid little attention to them. If each of us contributes a one-min film taken with one's phone camera, perhaps, we can work towards a collective sense-making.
