“The idea of place, where we belong, is a constant subject for many of us.”
—bell hooks, Belonging
Inspired by the exhibition Zoe Zenghelis: Fields, Fragments, Fictions multidisciplinary practitioner, architect, filmmaker, and educator Sarah Akigbogun leads an interactive design workshop called HomeScapes—Cities, Color, Belonging.
Zoe Zenghelis’s work is full of depictions of her homeland, Greece, and explorations of the metropolis, depicting the mood of place with intense use of color. Taking her work and these themes as a point of departure, this workshop will explore the notion of home as something we carry with us; as we travel, go about the day to day, move from one country to another. Working with film, making and performance, this workshop will explore what it is to arrive, move through and settle, briefly, in a place.
The workshop is co-presented with The Carnegie Mellon University School of Architecture.
