“In today’s rush, we all think too much — seek too much — want too much — and forget about the joy of just being” – ECKHART TOLLE

Himanshi Parmar, Visual Designer from Pune, India curates a little exhibit called .NOW. to give people an experience of being in the present moment through art and design. This exhibit has been put together by a mix of design students and professionals from different backgrounds in health psychology, cinema, advertisement, communication design, meditation and well-being with the hope to get you to feel something rather than to think.
About .NOW.
More often than not we’re everywhere but in the present. Our thoughts are running wild and we don’t know how to come back home to the being. Even now, we’re pre-occupied with thoughts of what is supposed to be done, what happened yesterday but what if we could keep everything on hold, just for one moment. Just for one moment, let time stand still and let your mind stand still with it.

 Why Design?

Art is often a medium to exhibit a variety of things that cannot be written or spoken about, simply because the words to describe them don’t exist. Pain, joy, suffering ecstasy – put onto canvas are much greater in undistilled emotion. In its abstraction it communicates the artist’s purest intentions, without allowing words to distract them with it.

Sure we could’ve written a book on mindfulness. We could’ve given a talk on being in the now , and you would’ve understood. But only through art – and it’s a subsidiary of design – will you be able to actually feel. There’s plenty that our brain cannot comprehend but can experience and can subliminally read in the coming together of line texture and color. Therefore design. We aren’t trying to inform or educate. We’re trying to make you feel.
