Dasvant is a noncommercial showcase for us to exhibit the work we have shot/done/distorted. It's our turn to get behind the camera. Sorry for the the glitches and mistakes.


Dasvant is derived from the word das[u]vant in Hittite language. It means blind. We have chosen it as a title for its obvious irony and as a small tribute to the cultural heritage of the land on which we live.

"Attack of the.." or "Invasion of the.." films have a special place in the history of B-movies. Their stories generally center around the invasion of aliens or attack of mutated monsters. To leave all those subtexts about the cold war and anti-communism aside, in these films, it is the humanity that struggles, gets attacked and slaughtered. It's also the humanity that wins most of the time.

But, is everything so simple? Who is the invader? Does the threat have to come from outside? Is the monster always a stranger? That is why I like the "What if.." question. It opens up the space to see other possibilities, revert the cases, look awry...

Why 236? Actually it was going to be 365 and the title would have been "One year of play dough". The aim was to make one move per day and photograph it. It started on January 1st, 2012 and was intended to be finished on December 31st, 2012. There was no pre-planned form or progression. It was completely coincidental.

However... On the 236th day, The LCD screen of the GoPro broke. We were already ending up with inaccurate frames with the LCD, it was totally impossible to keep shooting without seeing. So, the project ended

Everything had been coincidental, except for the duration. With the LCD breaking, even the duration became coincidental. I guess that's what "the project" deemed appropriate.
