Interactive, functional public space installation / Bamboo, plants and tea-shop / 2008

Description

A publicly installed bamboo structure, which allowed a dual use of public space. It allowed a tea shop to function and created space for children to climb it and grow vegetables and medicinal plants for themselves. I then did music, drawing and craft workshops at the space to seed different imaginative associations of the space in the children's minds.

This was installed as a part of the 48c public art festival in Delhi in 2008.
