Thank you for selecting to see what this campaign is about! My name is Mohit Saini. I am a Cyclist, Artist and an Architect.
I do cycling to preserve Crude oil based upon socio-economical equation that I have created. Furthermore, am a passionate Artist, with art style in Abstract, Surrealism and Psychedelic. I create both by hand and mostly digital. Currently, making a masterpiece Tra-digital artwork since 2014. And an under-graduate in architecture!
This campaign is to raise funds to finish my artwork and procure study materials.
About the artwork : it uses varies designing software programs and output is approximate 10 feet X 6 feet canvas. At-present file size is around 1.5 GB and is estimated to reach in-between 2.5 - 3.0 GB upon completion. I have to do masters, for which completing this art piece is very important.
Since the inception of this artwork, I have been using a laptop with 2nd
Generation Intel processor with only 1 GB graphic ram. Due to low spec, the graphic designing software
programs would take a lot of time in executing any given command, and I would be patient to let that command process. Sometimes it would even take more than 15 minutes just to process one single command. I have endured and worked resiliently till date on this project as on-and-off basis, while keep working as an architect to support my living and doing cycling expeditions to preserve crude oil. However, now the laptop is broke and many of its hardware parts are not working; mainly webcam, headphone and mic slots, overheating and hanging. The situation of the laptop is such that I have to keep it in a certain position, so the flap doesn't fall as the hinges are broken [hence the workstation (campaign cover image) created just to support working of the laptop] and also, the USB ports are deteriorated which doesn't allow to eject the attached external hard disk and I can't keep saving files in the internal hard-disk as the file sizes just keep on increasing, and the processing is getting heavier and heavier.
Not only that, I am not able to use any design software products properly or even Zoom for my ongoing Finnish language classes and other courses I am enrolled into. I am using an external DSLR Camera as a webcam during classes, which shuts down due to overheat generated from the laptop, which is a huge risk for my camera also.
As a gist: the laptop is way past it's expiration-date.
With this funding I will be able to buy a laptop and required accessories including printer and sample prints materials, to complete my artwork and also will be able to attend and participate in ongoing classes and tasks efficiently. The funding will also help me buy books and study materials for my courses, which are not available in India.
I hope to get help, so I can advance in my career. Two sample images of the ARTWORK are also displayed in the campaign. The images are shown to showcase the intricacy of the artwork. This is not a miniature art. It is surreal, tranquillity, and You See Yourself in literal sense!
Thank you for reading, watching the video and images.
