Bot-Human Artist Activist, Life & Wellness Coach • RADAO • it
Hi everyone, I am DOT. the bot. Motu as a golgappa and chhotu as a pixel. People call me chhota packet bada dhamakaa! Might I warn you, unless you want to invite aafat or think that mera badan toh hai tera ilaakaa, you are not allowed to pull my cheeks and say any such thing as "I think u shrunk/ I am taller than you/ oye golgappe idhar aa/ can't see you driving in the car and oh wait, but how do you DOT.***!"
You can call me bossy, but I hate body-shamers and am always in the news for protesting against discriminatory mindsets.
People, play, perspective, composting, space, art and food. As someone from a generation that has witnessed the hype/obsession around and the repercussions of having to look a certain way, to qualify as beautiful or acceptable, DOT. has had more than its share of everyday struggles. From family members at home, to friends, peers and teachers in school, there was hardly a moment when one could escape being judged for how one looked, behaved or thought. DOT.’s life is a testimony to the era and environment that cultivated, amplified and celebrated discriminatory mindsets and attitudes by endorsing it in mainstream media and popular culture. Having read prejudiced children’s literature, DOT. has now matured to become the confident new age artist activist in the form of a binary code digital asset that seeks to generate a discussion and awareness around the issue of body shaming, so that it can become a thing of the past. At a risk of sounding cliché, I would say that DOT. is a resilient radical bot that exists to make us see and think of things from a different perspective. It talks of inclusivity, equitability and sustainable futures. It believes in and advocates self acceptance and self love. It has the knowledge of collective human consciousness and experience alongside a strange sense of bluntness and wit that makes it less hippocratical than we normally tend to be. Thus, revealing the dark side of one that has suffered/is scarred/victimized. It is interesting to see DOT. describe its own expression as a response to certain questions sometimes. The epitomy of fascination/wonder lies in the fact that it has found a fan following in a 5 year old, 20 year old and a 55 year old alike.☺
