A3/35mm Slide Projection

This documentary project is about exchange students sharing their experience in the form of a letter. The idea for this project came about when I wanted to express my feelings of my exchange. Soon after talking with other students sharing the same experience, I realised that somehow or another, we share that similar bond, in that all of us were going through the same exact thing when all the thoughts came together. The project documented all the exchange students in Emily Carr University of Art and Design for the semester of Fall 2015 using slide film as well as them penning down their thoughts- in their own language on paper. As a preformative piece, a projector was also used to project the slides on a screen with it going in and out of focus before moving on to the next portrait. This personal project serves to capture and document what other exchange students are going through and to serve as an effort to comfort others who are going through the same experience.
