Md Alomgir Hossain is intrigued by human emotions and experience from life till death. Hossain believes that the human body is in reality our only possession. Hossain has employed computer-generated visual media ranging from animation to digital sculpture to express his feelings based on that philosophy. By combining the elements of the natural world with a digital environment he seeks to bridge the gap between 'the new machines that characterise the modern age and the natural machine — humans'.

The Human Library was developed in Copenhagen in the spring of 2000 as a project for Roskilde Festival by Ronni Abergel and his brother Dany and colleagues Asma Mouna and Christoffer Erichsen. This July, get ready to witness this library come alive! 

At the event, people from different walks of life will be presented as books. The readers will be given a list of books and they will choose one book to borrow for a period of 20 minutes. They will engage in an interactive, one-to-one conversation where the book will narrate his/her experiences and the reader(s) will try to understand the book better by asking questions. 

The titles have already been shortlisted for the event! 

This being the first event of this type, spot registration will be done on a first come first serve basis. Once you register, you will receive a time slot for your conversation with the book. 

The event is free for all.
