cultural exchange

This year's first project was called Cultural Exchange and was in two parts. The first part was to make a film exploring the relationship between Dover and Calais, and England and France, through the ubiquitous cross-channel ferry journey. The second part was to manufacture an object, a gift between the two nations. 

The  project was intended to explore a number of themes including objects out of place, souvenirs and miniatures as well as the tradition of political gifts exemplified by the Statue of Liberty, a present from France to the United States in 1886. The following pictures show the statue under construction in its Paris workshop.
