During this project I researched and analysed the data surrounding homelessness in the UK. The aim was to use unconventional and uncomfortable design to raise awareness of the problem.
The final piece made the audience to address the realities of homelessness. You place your hand on a cold surface until the temperature is that experienced by the average homeless person on the streets in the UK. The second stage of the project involved a spray full of scents experienced on the streets, such as car fumes and urine, this is used to reveal the hard hitting statistics.
The project uses our most powerful senses to connect with our emotional response to the information, hopefully encouraging a more powerful reaction.
