When I was travelling in Jaipur I came across a shop that sold recycled tyres. Cobblers bought sheets of this recycled rubber from which they made shoes for the poor. It was also used by the construction industry to create basins or cases to carry bricks. I found the material fascinating. Oceanic Carpets was born out of this fascination. The Carpets in which i’ve incorporated these strips of recycled rubber have the appearance of the waves in an ocean. The oceans in much of my work are emblematic of a highway of culture.
