SOCIAL INSTALLATION

“COURAGE, BEING OR BECOMING COURAGEOUS”.

Being brave is not that easy. With an interactive installation I want to open myself up to the judgments of others.

Together with two students of advertising and spatial design, we have devised a social installation to investigate and confront the visitor. We found out that we are discouraged by the prejudices of others, we wanted to turn this around and see what the prejudices really are instead of what we think. With the installation we ask people which prejudices suit us best. When they are finished with our questions, we confront them with why they prejudice us. And that they have just seen that these prejudices are not true, so that you cannot judge someone.
