Abstract [en]

I love contrasts and meetings between people. Situations where individual differences are highlighted, affected and shaped by each other.

In this project I have been working with five characters: the aggressive one, the frightened one, the social one, the reserved one and the proud one. By analyzing the characters I have tried to understand how they are able to meet and agree with each other. The goal has been to create a place where this can happen, but which is also adapted for each respective character.

The project is based on a field study I did in the summer of 2013, when I lived in a masai village in the northern part of Tanzania. Nescar is the name of a masai women I got to know, is means The one that you can trust. The black color in the masai culture is used for protection against evil spirits, in my project I want it to be a symbol of protection of differences.
