The Golden Road
In the transitioning from one geographical place to another, participants related moving into a psychological in-between space. In this space, they questioned, re-examined, and reflected on the meaning of who they had been…..as they moved towards repositioning themselves in new contexts. Thus, migrating was articulated as a process involving a departure from geographical and psychological places….towards finding and creating psychological places which incorporated who they were in [the] multiple locations [of their host and home countries].

This work was commissioned by the London School of Economics and explored the psychological affects of economic migration experienced by a young woman who’d traveled from Eastern Europe to Britain. It was also the first work exhibited in the newly built Atrium Gallery.
