About the artwork
‘What colour do you feel most connected to?’
This was the question I asked every participant who took part in my project, ‘Soul Collection’.
‘Soul Collection’ is a digital participatory collection which I developed during the winter holidays of 2020.
I asked all of the participants this question, and then I would go away and make them a ‘digital soul’. This was based both on the colour requested, and what I saw when I looked at a photo of them.
The main emphasis of this project was finding a way for me to offer some sort of comfort to people during quite a depressing moment in human history.
