Sail To Hope 34

"Sail To Hope has a symbolic expression to emphasise the vulnerability and globalisation.

Our world is smaller than ever, as if, even sailing to another land by a paper boat is possible.

People are relocating, changing life for hope, taking big risks for a better life.

Fast information exchange is triggering the motivation to relocate especially

from less developed eastern countries to the modern western life.

Allegorical shapes of clouds and waves inspired from the eastern miniature

art, represents migration from eastern world. The crowded, impersonalised

textures symbolise modern west. The paper boats are made from the eastern

maps; naive, simple, and daring."
