‘Why’ by @daku 156 | Hussain Sagar Lake, Hyderabad
And we are back with our first work of the season with Indian Street artist Daku who has created a massive installation on the Hussain Sagar lake in Hyderabad that questions the rampant use of plastic in our daily life
Built with 3,00,000 recycled plastic bottles in the form a giant Question Mark (‘?’), ‘Why’ is an attempt to start conversations around the growing problem of plastic pollution all over the world.
What can citizens do about this problem? What can the governments and corporations do? Where do we go from here?
These are all questions Daku hopes the viewers will ponder over. Through its scale and magnitude, the installation aims to encourage self-reflection on our current consumption habits, and hopefully lead to a search for solutions, beyond the question itself.
What do you think of the installation? What is the soloution to the problem? Tell us below in the comments section. ‘Why’ is also powered by solar panels making it visible on the Hussain Sagar lake even at night. So if you are in Hyderabad, go check it out! It will be available for public viewing for a period of one month
