Urban Media Art Project for Emotional Transitions, Bangkok Program November 2017
This art project proposes a potluck with an interactive experience that tells the stories of the immigrant families in Klongchan Public Housing in Bangkok through food made of home cooking recipes presented in an installation with memorial elements taken from their hometowns. The artwork will be installed in a serie of dining rooms which are copies of the residents’ original dining rooms. Audio-visual elements will create an ambience of memory of their hometowns. The motivation of the artist is to intermediate an understanding of the cultures and the history of the families from the different regions of Thailand.
