In this episode of The Mumbai Porta, two bravehearts from the Indian Army interact with a US Army Veteran and discuss an important issue that ails both the armies. Watch to learn how each one us can do our bit to protect those who protect us!
Amar Bakshi is an artist and the creator of Shared_Studios, a multidisciplinary art collective that connects people across all forms of distance. In 2014, the studio launched Portals, which uses custom spaces, usually gold shipping containers, equipped with audio-visual technology to allow participants to converse with others in identical spaces around the world. Since launching, more than 25,000 people have spoken to one another through Portals spread across twenty countries, including participants such as Barack Obama and artist Tania Bruguera. Amar is a graduate of Harvard University and also holds degrees from Johns Hopkins and Yale Law School.
Portals is a global public arts initiative. Each Portal is a gold shipping container equipped with immersive audio and video technology inside. When you enter one, you come face-to-face with someone in a distant Portal and can converse live, full-body, and making eye contact, as if in the same room.
It looks like a shipping container, but it's so much more. This gold painted portal is allowing people in Milwaukee to connect with portals in 29 countries. On Friday, thoughts on crime prevention were exchanged. Conversations in the Milwaukee portal are being recorded. The dialogue will be shared with researchers at Yale University, who are trying to better understand the public perception of police.

JUDY WOODRUFF: Now: an art project attempting to build individual connections across the globe.
It’s called Portals, and is the brainchild of artist and former television news producer Amar Bakshi, who told us that, in his former profession, the most meaningful conversations often came once the cameras were turned off.
