Aaron Sinift's 5 Year Plan

Sinift's refreshingly sensible art project uses jhola bags made from "khadi" - that handmade cotton based cloth common to Indian rural villages, and essentially the backbone of Gandhi's self sufficiency program - transforming art into the practical, while employing villagers, funding Doctors Without Borders, and offering art patrons & collectors something as well. His literary supplement includes something from one of Allen's more obscure books Luminous Dreams (1997 Zasterle Press, Gran Canaria), long out of print.
