opening eyes. hearts. minds.
we are experiencing the biggest movement of people in modern history. people, cultures, religions and languages are mixing more than ever before. yet, our societies struggle to find ways to facilitate this; our systems, services and behaviours are not designed to support it and the evidence of our growing empathy deficit are now daily news. “the globalization of indifference”, pope francis recently called it. we may have dreamt of a cultural melting pot, but in reality we live in a mosaic of segregated communities.
my vision as an empathy designer and artist is to challenge this through my work.
