Thought behind the idea of work:


Idea was to add colours in every manner or as an surprize element to show the interference in an existing camouflage site. after going through an overall site visit I felt that the  people staying there are self sufficient  and eassy to go with their environment and somehow that forced me to respect their life and bound to not to interfere in their way of living in the name of art but the interest and engagement of the people of surrounding encouraged to go through certain activities. And as the main source of their survival was those Ficus Elastica(rubber plants). which they values, their effort, every drop of rubber milk and proccess. So material selection came with the though to use extensively available abandon material, that is the rubber plant seeds rest was dependent on the process of collecting then colouring and spreading the material through engaging kids of that area.
