The Where is a project that uses public participation from the beginning to the end. The thesis of the project is to showcase personal memories with locational specificality to the public to interact with. We do not necessarily remember where we had our first kiss, but when asked, “Where did you have your first kiss?” the memory starts to unfold. The Where is a project that explores how memories create deep connections that intertwine place and an event, public and private space.
