HIGHLIGHTS of UnBox 2013

In 2013, workshops form a core part of UnBox allowing participants to engage deeply with an international group of exemplary practitioners and studios in a true ‘Hand On, Minds On’ fashion, ranging from skill building around cognition to creating products using technology tools, with craftspeople.

Eminent scholars, thinkers, and doers present their work while challenging attendees to question and rethink conventions on topics like education, manufacturing, anthropological inquiry, design, music, and traditional worldviews. Seminars are conversational, and audience participation is encouraged.


Food Lab
An explosion of gastronomical delights, Food Lab is the umbrella title for all things food and beverage at this year’s festival and builds of the success and popularity of last year’s Food Lab. New and different preparations and ingredients explore pairings that promise to be as serendipitous as they are delicious. 
These culinary efforts culminate in a festival-ending feast to close this year’s UnBox on a high, and tasty, note.

Progressing a mandate to experiment with spirits at UnBox, the Liquid Lab is led by mixologist Arijit Bose and brewer Aditya Challa. On the heels of the supremely successful Liquid Lab at UnBox 2012, this year promises several new dimensions. Liquid Lab will include Jameson’s Arcade & Screen Bar, Absolut Artisanal Bar, Nine Hills Vino Picnic, Absolut Unique Me, Pernod-Ricard Hack Bar.

A lab that explores aspects of digital form-giving and manufacture. the lab is open for use and
experimentation and features seminars, 3D printed identity sculpts that are based generative modules being explored for UnBox, 3D collection titled “Future Forest” and collaboration with the Artisan Node.

Space Frame
Space Frame is an open lab that addresses spatial projects, art installations and performances at UnBox.
It is led by The Busride studio (Mumbai) and a group of architects and students. The challenge for space design at UnBox directs towards frugal use of finances and materials, multi-purposed and re-purposed building modules.

Open Labs
Designers, artists, musicians, chefs, programmers, and even a master brewer unite at this year’s festival to explore their skills and trades in a new context to see what emerges. Our hosts will engage with participants in this exploration, making these truly hands-on experiences. Elements created in the labs add to the festival flavor, with tangible outputs shared, sold, or even eaten.

The TechPlayLab gives participants hands-on access to a selection of emerging material and digital technologies. TechPlay Lab will foster conversations around the impact of multidisciplinary interventions on the development and commercialization of future technologies. TECHPLAY Lab in UnBox will be co-created by the team of Mansoor Siddiqi, Dr. Jon Rogers, Mithun Vargese and Thiruda & Romit Raj.
