Dosanjh & Robyn
In BURROW, we ask ourselves:
- How does the fundamental nature of poverty exacerbate sensory overload?
- How does this affect our connection to ourselves, each other, our surroundings? Our sense of time and place?
- When the body is consistently invaded by the surrounding environment, what sense of self can be maintained?
- If everything we are is transferable, can we be brought back again?
We do not have the answers.
