An interactive installation exploring how national identity is determined and defined in a multi-cultural and globalised society.
Designed by Marianne Holm Hansen in association with Seth Scott and electronic musicians from the Guildhall School, the piece examines the perpetual dialogue between personal and national identities. By contributing their voice and image to the work, the participant's identity is subsumed in to an ever-changing mean. These ephemeral composites expose the impossibility and intangibility of a singular national identity.
The installation accompanies the exhibition Strange and Familiar: Britain as Revealed by International Photographers curated by iconic British photographer Martin Parr, presenting a vibrant portrait of the UK from the 1930s onwards.
