THE EXTENSIVE SURVEY, DIGITAL ARCHIVING, DOCUMENTATION AND END USER EXPERIENCE OF THE CRAFTS IN AND AROUND HAMPI

A Dept. of Science and Technology, Govt. of India Funded Project

The Crafts Council of Karnataka was funded to conduct an extensive survey, digital documentation and end user experience for crafts of the Hampi region. In this context we  looked at the living crafts of the feudalists and/or pastoralists.

We present our findings through this rich online experience, so that this would lead to a deeper understanding and appreciation of Hampi crafts amongst the wider public both nationally and internationally. Over the course of this project we will store all our findings into this Hampi Crafts Researcher Wiki. We invite artists, designers, architects, organisations, researchers and practitioners of crafts interested in contributing to this database to contribute.

 

PROJECT OBJECTIVE

Our objective is to create a detailed digital archive of information on select living crafts of the Hampi region. It is our goal to digitally document these processes and create an online, rich, end-user experience that is suited to the dissemination of our research and findings amongst the broader public.
