The first book of Khoya, the labour of my ove,
has arrived in App stores.
Khoya is an interactive narrative for children that uses new technology- like the iPad to bring alive a magical experience for children and It's been magical indeed.
In this last year I have seen in transform from sketches on the back of used printed paper
to a breathing, glowing interactive piece of Art.
it's been presented and Launched at the INK CONFERENCE where I also was the featured artist of the year and designed the stage,
On one afternoon my fates let it be presented to Steve Wozniak!
co-founder of apple, who interacted with the app and said that Artists were as important to Apple as the technology. Coming from Woz the Wizard, it was a definite spark of magic in my life.
and it was presented at the WIRED conference this year in the UK.
all before I graduated from University too :)
2011 has been a year of constellation making and starry skies.
And the Universe works in mysterious ways, I am grateful for it always.
there's a Kabir poem that goes :
'The Redness of my Beloved is such
that I went out in search of Red
and became Red myself.'
I feel like I've gone seeking magic through my work, and have found it in my own life.
