Engaged Media: Involuntary Journeys

Composite Paintings from storytelling on Google Earth. For an interactive journey, download the .kmz file here.

The project started with Refugee interviews on Lesbos collected on a Project Blog site + explained on this site under ‘Talks+ Shows’. I migrated selected stories as an interactive path onto Google Earth, some of them with intricate textual + image overlays. The images below are compositions of expressive moments of these refugee trails.
