Global Village Health Manual by Mrityunjay Chatterjee and Raqs Media Collective
Reprints of 19th century Calcutta woodcuts are used to build the interactive interface, along with contemporary elements taken from an array of sites from the internet. These components are edited, reframed, rendered and transformed to embody a new sensibility.
