Blued Book

BLUED is an illustrated documentation of the use of Taad-Patri, as referred to colloquially in India. “The blues of a tarpaulin is a common sight in urban metros. Blue Tarp is comparatively inexpensive and typically used as a creative jugaad solution due to the strength and convenience of the material. It is commonly seen at the street-side makeshift shops as a base to display their wares and keep them safe from the dirt on the roads. It is also used for waterproofing and wind-proofing and thus can be seen covering the houses of the poor and the rich. During monsoon, the city often seems like a sea of cobalt blue due to the excessive use of Tarps. Additionally, it makes for excellent sun-proofing, dust-proofing, pigeon-shit proofing, packaging, and temporary refugee camps.” -Sameer Kulavoor
