KABINETTi

I asked friends and relatives to write down a memory based description. This description should tell about an important or unforgettable person, place or even a situation. I asked the description to be as visual as possible, like a picture. No name should be mensioned.

2005-2010

For the project KABINETTi I asked friends and relatives in Finland and Germany to write down a memory based description. This description should tell about an important or unforgettable person, place or even a situation. I asked the description to be as visual as possible, like a picture. No name should be mensioned.
I choosed from several descriptions those which gave me a strong vision and made drawings based on my vision an facts from the descriptions.
