Returning Interaction

Returning interaction

Participants are asked to choose a blindfold and draw their teenage bedroom in a large sketchbook. The Blindfolds have the word Returning on them in different languages according to the location of the interaction. After the drawing is done, and the blindfold removed, they are asked to write a sentence about it.
The books slowly fill up.

In most cases Participants are positively surprise by the ‘blind’ drawing. The displaced lines in the drawings show gaps in memory, time and space. The stories around the drawings speaks generally of family relations, immigration, rite of passage and related social and cultural backdrops.
