The central theme behind this exhibition for which i was invited, was to find a connection with the people living in the area/neighbourhood in Amsterdam west (Bellamy Buurt). I thought it would be interesting is to explore the possibilities of social media and try to find the people living in the streets of the ‘Bellamy Buurt‘ by using Facebook to find them and see how they would present themselves and if i could get to know them based on photos, anekdotes and ‘daily’ routine(s) posted. I found a handful of people and started profiling them and gathering photos. Once i’ve decided i had enough material i made this big drawing and try to make short stories based on these Facebook identities i found and highlight some key moments in the stories and photos they posted. The final drawing was hung in a window attached to an GPs practice and hung there for 3 months.
