Walk A Mile In My Shoes


Installation and motion graphics piece

2019
Focusing on the theme of ‘Migration’, I decided to create an empathetic installation that asked the audience to step into the shoes of a refugee, taking them on the same journey they experience when trying to make it to safety.

Using Arduino and Processing, I created an Interactive Map with RFID tags attached to hotspots and different pairs of shoes. When the user stepped on a specific hotspot, it would trigger a video to appear on-screen, relevant to the location of the hotspot. I created four different hotspots for the key locations of a refugees journey; Syria, Turkey, Greece and Hungary, and three different pairs of shoes, depicting three individual journeys.

I used archival news footage as the basis for the motion pieces, curating different pieces together, and adding typographic animations on top of a select few to convey the serious narrative of the journey, for example with the endless mountains of lifejackets, each representing a different soul searching for a new life.
