The earthen pot reappears in an untitled installation, this time comprising of three photographs of the artist throwing a pot over his shoulder captured in distinct moments. An actual clay pot accompanying the photographs is on display with its fragments pieced back together. With cracks still visible on its surface, the afterlife of the pot is portrayed having lost its physical integrity but retaining its past.
