Nidhi Khurana is a visual artist based in New Delhi, India. She had been working with botanical dyeing techniques to create artworks on cloth and paper. She is interested in exploring organic material to document concepts of recycling and up cycling in order to reduce waste. She creates maps and uses the idea of mapping as a metaphor to delve into deeper issues of existence. Blaumachen; making blue… "The verb 'blaumachen' originates from the term 'blauer Montag', meaning blue Monday. This was a traditional day of rest for those in the dyeing trade. On Sunday, the dyer would soak his wool and on Monday, it would be hung out to dry. The special solution would react with the air and turn the wool blue. While this process was taking place, the dyer had nothing to do other than sit down, twiddle his thumbs and "make blue" for the whole day.” Nidhi invites the viewer to participate in her artwork during the open studios at the Hochschule für Bildende Kunste Braunschweig.
