Repositioning of the Spirit
The objective is to bring the essence or spirit of an object
and translate it into a space, that alters the object- it's
meaning, motive, existence.
I chose a childhood object- a One Rupee note, dating back
to circa 1974, I wanted to encapsulate a few of my childhood
memories in it, and bring in the old adage- that money
cannot buy everything, specially to a child- in the hope that
the value of this will exceed the note's material connotation.
So, when you open the tiny note, it pops up into the times..
..when we bottled in fireflies.
Or smothered our neighbourhood with kites.
Or floated paper boats in the rain.
This is my first adventure with paper 'engineering' but I guess
you can do anything if you have a story to share!
