Students paint a 44 Feet Mural!!
The wall mural painting project was started on 24th October and went on for 5 days i.e. 28th October. The Visualizing and painting team consisted of 1 Senior faculty and around 15 students. The team was led by Faculty, ex-NID and consisted of students from BSc (Animation and Multimedia), AAASP and DAE3D students.
“From a light box to a tree,
from a ninja to the deep sea.
Ravishing Zebra to a flying Turtle,
Birds flying the the red sky..so Subtle!
Walking eye looks so tempting,
Watch the birds transforming.
It looks like a beautiful dream,
Full of colors, cakes and cream.”
Each frame in the mural speaks a different story. Moreover for the students it was really fruitful session of “How to handle Colors?” Many of them tried their hand in coloring a wall for the first time in their life and though it became the difficulty too for some time.
There was a special “Night Squad” which consisted of the faculty and 7 students who used to work the whole night. Chai (tea) really helped the “Night Squad” to stay awake and work. Its always fun to play with so many colours.
The mural measures 44 feet in length and took a couple of manenthus (yes manenthu is bigger than manmonth) to complete. The insomnia made the whole experience transcendental. The end did justify the means and the final result was something that elicits wows from many SCDL student examinees besides being a must visit “attraction” on the campus. Well the number of must visits is going very high now and we need to make a tourist map just in case the visitor loses his way 🙂
