Amol K. Patil : Visual phonetics

I found hand written songs of my grandfather who was a poet (Shahir). The songs comes from a protest tradition since the 17th century called ‘Powada’. They were much in use before and now, after national independence even if still found, not many sing it today. In contemporary time in it has evolved itself in the form of Rap Music, by expressing it out in furious words, against the caste system. Also including the revolutionary spoken word histories of BR Ambedkar, who was the author of the Indian constitution, the Dalit thinker, who gave India roads out of caste towards social equality.
So I am looking at the Marathi language in terms of drawing forms by using alphabets on small notebook pages. Each paper is looking at the phonetics of a single alphabet and trying to make visual vocabulary by using my grandfather’s poems.
