Meditation on “home” from the vantage of the exile experience. Stories of forced and adopted homelands told in layers of loss, confusion, and turmoil with displacement expressed as immersive projection, virtual reality, live performance and interactive media. Multi-sense gathering of multitudes in a virtual desert as an abstraction of the exile nightmare of Dadaab where 211,000 refugees are “hosted” in three camps. What’s seen in adopting a neutral space, reflected in ache of homeland while yearning for safe haven, exposed as dire and desperate, and elevated by dreams of hope.
