Cultural formation (Visual research)

I hired the handicraft community to make a monk bowl for me.

The found object contains the action of local crafters, which do to the object and represent the place where it is from by itself.

To avoid the meaning which relates to a religious context. I decided to show a structure without colour over it. Additionally, It represents handcrafting.

The repeating of dot around the shape of the monk bowl shows the continuous action that forms cultural identity.
