This academic work was a part of the studio ‘Re-Contained Past’. This studio was located at the intersection of Exhibition Design, Craft and Culture, and System Thinking. The intention of this studio was to develop a travelling exhibition of the vernacular furniture of Gujarat. The exhibition, therefore, depicts six stages of life (as per scriptures of Hinduism) through some pieces of vernacular furniture found in Gujarat. Housed within a container, each stage will be depicted using different colours, similar to that of what a leaf attains during a lifetime – hence symbolizing a life cycle.
