Project for Start Stipendium 2015
Recollect Space focuses on people’s memories of their architectural surroundings. It connects places to stories and experiences which are shaped by remembered and retold architectural details. Specifically, the project refers to the memories of refugees who at the moment are not able to return to places they used to inhabit.
The project depicts these places. They were informed by the thoughts and descriptions of refugees’ lost architectural surroundings which were translated into abstract images using three-dimensional software. The created images are presented alongside personal stories and memories. They are open for individual interpretation.
Recollect Space invites to think the connection of place, memory and narration further. It challenges individual imaginations of heard descriptions.
