Sit down and rest for a little while, since 2015
Sit down and rest for a little while is a long term project with the aim to slow down people and question fear mongering in this hectic and uncertain times.
I sew cushions from old blankets and bed covers and print on them the message ‘sit down and rest for a little while’. Then I take them to central London or other cities and place them on public benches and places. Sometimes I wait for reactions and sometimes I just leave it to chance. Sometimes I capture it with hidden camera and sometimes people start a conversation. Sometimes people are very suspicious and sometimes people have fun with it.
I take a picture of each placement and write down date and location.
To show this action in gallery space a selection of the photographs can be displayed as a wall piece and cushions are free to take and place.
