Finding Your Way Home

‘Finding Your Way Home’ is a project based on the theme of homesickness that explores the experiences of people who have been displaced from cultural, political, economical, religious and personal attachments. The project is a collaboration between fashion designer and artist Sharka Bosakova, myself, and participants from the Logan community. Logan City Council and the Regional Arts Development Fund has kindly supported the production of this project.
The initial stages involved creating wearable garments from various materials, ranging from collectible items to recycled and/or found objects. This was followed by a photographic process that reflected on participants’ current being. Members of the Logan community were involved for an environmental portrait that reveals their new state of cultural identity.
