I Just Want To Say Hello

Three public intervention projects at the residency at Lichtenberg Studio, Berlin, 2011

I was invited to this residency at a former East Berlin disctrict of Lichtenberg. The first time I set foot on that area, I felt an immediate sense of alienation, an indifference from the people around the Lichtenberg Studio, in the streets. Consequently, I decided to make a project called, "I Just Want To Say Hello", to explore the issues underlying the sense of disconnection and the possibility of connecting with the local people.

I made three projects: 1) Eye Contact; 2) [dis]Connect; 3) Bernd. They are documented in photography and drawings and videos, all in this PDF file: "I Just Want To Say Hello".
