Do You Think About Home 2019
Do You Think About Home is an immersive installation consisting of holographic projection mapping on water screens and sound, looking at the mysterious life cycle and migration of the critically endangered European eel.
Told from the eels’ perspective, the project aims to cast a light on the story of this critically endangered animal whose existence is threatened by human action and climate change. Here, the eels are taken as a metaphor for the human strife for self-fulfilment, the seek for the utopian place and state.
Drawing parallels between the lives of humans and eels in the wake of climate change, the piece deals with the struggles of overcoming borders and barriers, in a world where long journeys and migrations are increasingly becoming more difficult.
