THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

As part of my dissertation at the Royal College of Art, "There Is No Place Like Home" is a visual journey on my sense of home in relation to my bedroom during my 14-days quarantine in Hong Kong.

Through the iterative visual mappings methodology inspired by the Situationist International's (SI) notion of psychogeography and dérive, the visual journey explores a physical environment and its impact on a person's emotions and behaviours.

"There Is No Place Like Home" is awarded with Distinction by the Royal College of Art.

KEYWORDS & SKILLS: Home, Quarantine, Situationist International, Psychogeography, Dérive, Map, Academic Writing, Design Methodology, Place, Insideness / Outsideness, Ethnography
