We and They 

Participatory Project, dimension variable, 2016

Starting from the curiosity about how we see differences among people, or how we differentiate ourselves from others, I came across the idea of asking people to make sentences using specific words. During the time span of four weeks, I approached around fifty passersby randomly at public spaces in London and asked them to write one sentence with “we” and one sentence with “they” for me. The products were two notebooks filled with diverse characteristic handwritings— “we” sentences and “they” sentences.

 

Two notebooks containing respectively “we” sentences and “they“ sentences.
