Hybridisation between communities
AA Intermediate 3 2014/ 2015
xTaddas speculates and imagines the crossing and hybridisation of two distinct communities in Sri Lanka – the urban Tamils and indigenous Veddas. This intersection is driven by circumstances where they cross paths in Maduru Oya National park, 288km from Colombo in an alternate timeline of 1983. It is a speculation of the consequence of their convergence and confrontation, how the crossing of two distinct communities could arise in tension and dispute. It also envisions how the architecture, along with its integration with the natural forest around, could demarcate and segregate pockets of spaces yet allow and facilitate interaction to occur.
