Description of Ambient execution
The highly celebrated Arts & Crafts industry of India Is responsible for some of the finest handicrafts in the world. Exquisite carpets, Handcrafted woodwork, Ornate ceramics, Hand embroidered silk & zaree goods. However it hides an ugly truth. 60 million enslaved children. People who buy these products are unaware of this ugly truth. Our task was to raise consumer awareness. We put together a team of skilled artisans from the carpet industry, And weaved the crying carpet and placed a pressure sensitive sound chip under it. We also weaved suffering children in the design. Thus exposing the ugly truth through the handicraft itself. We then placed the carpets at several arts & crafts exhibitions, malls and mutliplexes across the country. When people walked on them, they heard children cry. When they stopped in shock and took a closer look, they saw the children toiling away in the carpet. A floor sticker led them on to a microsite where they could sign a petition against child labour.
