The Long Shadow

I used alternative darkroom techniques to explore how my grandfather's experience as a jew in concentration camps can impact multiple generations. The aim was to mirror epigenetic findings saying that traumas can be inherited. In this project, I am using Nazis color coding. Each ethnic group was given a specific color.    


I Explored the physical room by making playful sculptures with the same color codes as used by the Nazis in their camps. The boxes are lit. On top of each box, the MRI scan of my brain is placed. In the back of the room, the explanation of the color coding is placed.
