Cocaya - Migration. Back

Artwork Description

The most delicate and touching subject for an immigrant is the uprooting from their place and the way they are welcomed at the new place. How many questions derive from this unknown, new place? What kind of keepsakes does one take in their suitcase, when they leave, as consolation and hope? In the topic of Immigration I chose Axis 1 "Feelings of the foreigner". In this particular audio-visual work I thought we should give emphasis on the words of the people of Eleusis and with the help of biometric data, such as heartbeats, try to "transfer" their feelings of our fellow human beings.
