MYgration | Salzburg Academy 2016
Throughout my time at the Salzburg Academy on Media and Global Change we created a project that joins together stories of migration as told through objects. The unique and divergent objects showcased signify different ways to experience a signal story of our time: the story of migration.
Some migrants flee conflict. Other migrants seek opportunity. All carry something with them. Each object tells of journeys made. Taken together they trace a hopeful, humanizing, cross-cultural network of people and places. Below are the various different treasured object’s story and their links to the objects and their stories. Follow its trail across the world.
Passing through ports has shattered my sense of home. Learn how mobility has shaped my life.
The bitterness and sweetness of coffee has comforted me throughout my travels. Hear my story and connect with its essence.
The beautiful Japanese art form of Kintsugi mended the monk. The process symbolizes how I reassembled my cultural identity.
Two people, eight letters, four countries and thirty-two years of love. Join me and travel through this love story.
Ancestors I never met connected me with family I didn’t know I had. Come and meet them.
