Power House Hypothetical, Sydney
Through Indian Eyes: A hypothetical about craft, design, heritage and globalisation 2012
There has been much focus on saving traditional creative art forms and technologies in countries like India, where urbanisation has a dramatic impact on traditional lifestyles. But what if we reverse the situation? Do we in Australia have skills outmoded by modern technology that could be channelled into creative expression? Panellists include Diego Bonetto (visual artist and member of Big Fag Press collective), Jane Burns (former Director of Craft Australia), Sally Campbell (Indian textiles designer, businesswoman), Lindy Joubert (Foundation director, UNESCO Observatory), Ishan Khosla (Designer, founder of Ishan Khosla Design, New Delhi, India), Pawan Luthra (CEO Indian Link Media Group) and Christina Sumner (Principal curator, Powerhouse Museum).
This forum concerns design practices which draw on traditional knowledge, including indigenous cultures and folk craft traditions.Speakers consider how they engage with these cultural materials, whether through formal legal channels or personal relationships. What does this material give to the design, beyond visual input? How do Australia and India compare in they they deal with indigenous designs? Presented by the Australia India Design Platform in partnership with DESIS and the Design Research Institute.

Is there such a thing as an Indian Design Langauage?
The panel discussion in which Ishan was involved argued both sides — that design is a universal language but also as Ishan put it, the application of design is what makes it belong to a certain culture. He cited the example of Reza Abedini and Japanese and Dutch design which are unique to their culture.

20 Under 35, Alliance Francaise, New Delhi (Dec 2010–Jan 2011) Ishan Khosla Design was recently a part of an exhibition called 20 Under 35, organized by Design X Design and held at Alliance Française de Delhi. This exhibition showcased the work of Delhi based designers to facilitate a reading of the emerging trends across various design based creative industries in the city. Our installation was based on the kavad or traditional shrine which opens like a book. The exhibition was meant to be an open-book of our studio, our interests, concerns, projects and future vision.
Some of the topics we discussed in the installation were – the issue of the dying crafts of India and how cheap Chinese goods were flooding our markets and the ubiquity of "Fake Graphics" and how other graphic designers are helping companies produce replicated products which are geared to fool the consumer. We also showcased some of our projects where we worked with crafts people to create an "Indian Graphic Language" which merges craft and graphics.
