The Arte-fact brought together a collection of handpicked organic and man-made objects from my everyday walk at Kallron Ki Dhani, a village close to Jaisalmer, Rajasthan
These artifacts – lost, forgotten and abandoned found objects were systematically collected, cleaned, decorated and organized were and archived. These collected archived objects signify the identity of the place. Evidence of life forms (plants and animals), discarded materials and parts of agriculture equipment and machines which once helped with their livelihood, and traces of mass-produced objects remains for consumption. These artifacts provide evidence of our changing environments and attitudes. It documents our perplexed contemporary society and popular culture.
