Khirki Kholo

Coca-Cola bottle caps, shoelaces, empty cigarette boxes, gutka packets, match-sticks, straw and pebbles, can become a car, a plane, a dinosaur, the sun and transform into a multitude of toys. Initiated in collaboration with Tulsi Ram, the project finds its footing in the importance and need for play and invention in the everyday through everyday materials. I noticed children in the neighborhood making fantastic toys from waste material, therefore through Khirki Kholo we supplied simple red clay to the children to build and create their own toys.  For two months every evening we met at the Khirki village park and made clay toys, they were baked once every two weeks and given back to the children to take home.
