    A book was created titled ‘Residue’: All that was left. It works as an interactive kit, which could be sent to anyone who didn’t see the wrath of Hurricane Matthew as an attempt to evoke some empathy. The book comes inside an envelope with a red spray bottle. At first, the book appears to be absolutely blank and doesn’t read anything until the user sprays ink over the pages. Once sprayed, slowly, the pages absorb the ink and reveal the tragic stories that residents went through in the form of dialogs. Systematically, after the dialogs, the user can tear the page apart and reveal the appalling imagery. Not realizing that in the process, they are becoming Hurricane Matthew themselves creating destruction and disorder through the pages. The city was efficient enough to pull itself back together and be back on track within two days after the Hurricane. To show the same process, the left over pieces of the book were transformed into a poster along with a heart-felt note to Hurricane Matthew Read Less
