Part two of this series, roughly spanning from the early 1970's and the removal of Janata colony to the mid 1990s, takes us into specific housing trajectories of four large city organisations: Nivara Hakk, Nagari Nivara Parishad, YUVA and SPARC, in the face of emerging slum rehabilitation and private capital-oriented schemes. Watch part two, From Footpath to Flat (via FSI).
This series evolved from live-voiced video essays that CAMP has presented at a number of architecture and other schools. Its current form is an example of what can be done with open-access archives such as Pad.ma, and is also a general purpose proposal for what an "edit" in cinema terms may mean today. The backend consists of an in-browser editing system, being developed by Jan Gerber. The front end provides a video player with archival links on pause.

CAMP draws a series of lines between this and that exhibition. Not only between country A and country B, or horizontally between peoples or on the plane of "cultural exchanges" or "extra-national space", but vertically, or diagonally, reaching out to an actual place, to its actual power and presence.
For All Vahanvatti is designed to help a group think from the sea, rather than from the land. CAMP with Reliable Copy Propositions.
