Chim Chi Ho built his own kiln, and made ceramic┬átea bowls made with collected soil as a way to ‘preserve’ personal and collective memories.

The process of shaping and heating found soil, hardening the material to permanently change its state to symbolise the developmental changes in the forests.

The artist shared his extract of the forest with the public at Juhu Beach by exchanging his ceramic cups with personal belongings of participants. He collected train tickets, rakes, worship cards and a cricket ball, amongst many other personal possessions, as an exchange of value!
