Pune Design Festival

Ms Palak Paun, an alumna of the Institute of Design’s Visual Communication Programme, and currently preparing for her master’s received second position in the ‘Battle of Projects, Film, and Animation category’ for her Graduation project film ‘Sparsh’ at the Pune Design Festival organised in online mode during Feb 28-March 5, 2022 by the Association of Designers of India (ADI), a network of design professionals that focuses on creating awareness and excellence in design practice.

The film Sparsh was made with the intent to trace and depict the insights, experiences, and stories narrated by the people that she met at the Blind People’s Association, Ahmedabad, Gujarat. The project is an attempt at understanding how visually impaired people derive meaning from their surroundings. The responses act as a little window into how they perceive objects and spaces through the use of other faculties like touch, olfaction, taste, and auditory perception.
