'A Thing' by Chintan Gohil (above):
This wooden thing, made on lathe machine is part of an assembly for a bed rest. Objects like these, handcrafted pieces of art (!) are made everyday by artisans all over the world and go completely unnoticed. For the artisans themselves, it is simply about day-to-day survival and livelihoods. This film, a part of an ongoing series, attempts to record art in everyday life.
