Weaving Migrations

Alarcon, Ximena and Diaz Daza, Patricia (2016) Weaving Migrations. [Art/Design Item]

Type of Research: Art/Design Item
Creators: Alarcon, Ximena and Diaz Daza, Patricia

This audiovisual installation portrays members of both the London College of Communication (LCC) community and people from the Latin American community who work and run businesses in the Elephant and Castle shopping centre. It interweaves their everyday life perceptions of their working space, as well as their expectations of the forthcoming changes to the area: in future LCC will be located where the Shopping Centre is now.

This work acts as a metaphorical and virtual link that is strengthened by the permanent closure of the pedestrian subway, that physically used to link the two spaces, and stimulates a multicultural dialogue between the two communities.

Esta instalación muestra el retrato de miembros de la comunidad del London College of Communication (LCC), y trabajadores Latinoamericanos del centro comercial Elephant and Castle. Aquí se entretejen las percepciones de sus lugares de trabajo, y sus expectativas sobre los cambios que están sucediendo en el área. En el futuro LCC será transladado donde hoy está el Centro Comercial.
Este trabajo es un vínculo metafórico entre los dos espacios que se unían por el túnel subterráneo que se cerró. Queremos estimular una reflexión multicultural entre las dos comunidades.
