ID - Walls We Build, Walls We Destroy
As one of the artist in residence for three months in Urban Nation Museum Berlin, I have developed the project ID - Walls We Build, Walls We Destroy which is a sound+light+photo installation/concept about the process of creation of new identities by migrants trying to adapt to the German society. As they lived all together in the same place, with the same limitations and looking forward for the same independence in their new lives (even though from different cultures) they influenced each other in this process of creating this new personas, this new selves.
With the photographs of their faces I have used different printing technics (paste-up, light and transparency and silkscreen) to mix them in order to create new faces out of it. From their voices I have created a position detection generative sound environment mixing whispered phrases from German history — whether we had that opportunity to build and destroy walls between us (metaphorically speaking but not only) — with some excerpts of the interview I made with them about their personal experience as a migrant, or else, as the most vulnerable population of all the migration crisis we are facing right now as consequence of politics and economics all over the world.​​​​​​​
