Portraits of Dresden

"Does fear of strangers have a connection to the love of one's own place?"

Under this question, I created a new notation system made out of local substances and elements to transform public interviews into abstract portraits. Based on fifteen answers from informants who were randomly encountered in the city of Dresden, the material plates were generated. ​One material element is representing an answer. One plate stands for one's opinion and emotion about the current city and situations. By using a kaleidoscope-like instrument for seeing the answers as a constantly changing phenomenon of the city, the public interviews were conducted.

場所への愛着と部外者への恐れの感情は関係するのか?

この問いを基に、インタビューの回答を地域の自然素材や記号でつくられた現象に変換するシステムをつくった。ドレスデンの街で遭遇した回答者からの各15問の答えをもとにプレートは作られている。一つの素材は一つの回答をあらわし、一枚のプレートは一人の回答者の現在の街に対する思いを示している。万華鏡のような人々の回答を俯瞰する什器をつくり、ただ移り変わる現象としてそれぞれの人の回答を覗く、パブリックインタビューをおこなった。

The group exhibition "TOMORROW WE WILL EXPLAIN" was conducted by Kunsthaus Dresden and Public Art and New Artistic Strategies, Bauhaus University Weimar. Supported by Kreativefund.
