The concept of using everyday materials in creating artifacts has a strong impact on education. “The light in the distant eastern sky in a remote northeast village, my vivid memory of an unknown dawn filled with pearl fabric winter dew-- a wave of nostalgia hits me as the image of a bale of dry hay kept in a comfortable corner of a courtyard emerg- es. A few huts close together on the path around, the whole landscape changing through the seasons, wearing a new look every three months, vibrant seasonal changes—scenes infused with nostalgia. Ponds, mango and palm groves around paddy fields in green, ochre and brown tints—my vision takes a journey beyond the distant horizon and my eyes rest in an unknown perspective.”
