Horniman Museum & Gardens: Grinding stone pot - Ukal - ुकल
Object chosen by Pooja Sherkhane
In January 2023 five members of The Compound 13 Lab in Dharavi, Mumbai, India chose 5 different objects from the digital database of the Horniman Museum in London. The Horniman objects that they chose related to items in common use in their community, ones that would be used and handled regularly during their daily lives. They also corresponded to familial items that had special resonance to them. The objects were all 3D scanned during a remote viewing session between the Horniman Collections Centre and the Mumbai Lab space. Digital files of these objects were shared with members of the Compound and all 5 items were reprinted and shared within their community in Dharavi and beyond.
