A research video -
I am exploring the term "access" and its description in Indian media cultures. Through working with the book Construction for Destruction compiled by G.D. Naidu in the 1940s, conceptions of technology, creativity, and infrastructure are brought into discussion. The book comprises of letters asking for the meaning of destruction and the reasons for G.D. Naidu to destroy his radio inventions, which were the first ones built in India, and, furthermore, free in thought and copyright conceptions.
I use various sound and video tools to review the book together with media practitioners, artists, or theorists, and further on to show the process of text production, image research, book copying, skyping, and re-presenting. This video is showing the research and is itself research in the means of showing - unfinished, a staged process.
