How do I look on paper? - Lamis Haggag

Lamis Haggag ( Egypt )

‘How do I look on paper? ’ is a critical project that rejects evaluating peoplebased on their write-ups and documents. In the process of applying for visas,exhibitions, residencies, jobs or immigration, you are judged based on how youappear to be on paper. Whoever processes your documents does not know you as aperson. They do not know your history, likes, dislikes and they certainly do notidentify with you as an individual; your whole life is reduced to a pile of paper andyour future is decided upon it. My project comprises building an experiential space,where people are able to use all senses to experience the work. Things to touch,smell, walk through, contemplate, alternate or even watch grow, a changing minimalprocess rather than a finished piece.
