Through collaboration with Shared Journeys ESOL students at CAMBA*, this multi-perspective installation addressed the complex transitions in the daily lives of immigrants, reflecting on transitions between languages, aspects of culture, expectations and reality.
The etched panels include words, maps, and diagrams derived from ESOL student narratives. They are complemented by Suchitra Van’s photography which seeks to capture aspects of immigrant’s lives in the city that are not publicly visible.
Students in the Windows Project came
from countries around the world, including Panama, Mexica, Bangladesh, Yemen, Haiti, Congo, Central Republic of Africa and Ecuador.
