This is a mode of visual meeting to connect with Pakistani rural women through creativity. By receiving an image! Everyone experiences love, joy, sadness, pain, fear, frustration, gratitude, excitement and so many other emotions every single day. The idea is to connect to those shared emotions. To do this through the medium of creative expression — to visualize, to make tangible our experience by completing the ‘image-story’ of another.
To cultivate receptivity — by spending enough time with the image to “mine” all of its visual, emotional, and spiritual potential. To really see the image, avoid the tendency to judge/ evaluate and gain new insights into ourselves, the creation and the creator.
This interactive map illustrates synergy between two different people, two different communities — rural / urban or local / international.
Meet a fellow creative across the ocean. Receive the image. Reply back!
Everything and everyone is interconnected through an invisible web of stories. Whether we are aware of it or not, we are all in a silent conversation.
