An interactive installation of the prototypes created at Plataforma 0_LABoral Centro de Producción, in collaboration with 1Scale1, based on an original idea by Alicia Framis for Purificación García and LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial 

This collaborative project involving various cultural agents was conceived with the purpose of funding cooperation and development projects in India. Purificación García and LABoral are working together on this project combining art, fashion, new technologies and social commitment. The project is materialised in a purse with a light inside designed by Alicia Framis with proceeds from sales going towards funding solidarity projects.

With the idea of bringing light to a community which lacks it in the 21st century, Framis conceived a series of proposals to realize her idea, playing with elements such as LEDs, solar batteries, dynamos... yet all underpinned by the same message: THINKING OF DALLIPUR.


Plataforma 0_LABoral Centro de Producción has been working on these ideas and has come up with a series of special, unique prototypes of a handbag, reflecting on new technologies, the responsible use of energy and sustainability, which will be on exhibit coinciding with its launch.
