This academic work by Vedangi Ravindra Raval 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. For this project, the association of vernacular furniture to the rituals and ceremonies of the sixteen sanskars in Hinduism (starting from birth to death) was explored. Of the sixteen, three sanskars were chosen for this exhibition; furniture associated to Naamkaran which is associated with birth, Vivaha which is associated with marriage and Antyeshti associated with death.
