Namdev presents an interactive, site-specific sound installation and performance. It is inspired by the jugaad, or the innovative solutions to problems, of reusing glass bottles in the farm to create an intervention to scare animals away. On shifting this installation to the site of the exhibition – a significant departure in terms of its setting from a farm to an urban site – this intervention takes on a new meaning and function. The project also highlights the concept of improvisation in the reuse of resources to meaningful ends, where nothing is wasted.
