old routes new roots

A project commissioned by Dr Mick Gowar and Dr Jeanette Baxter. I was part of a group of 5 artists asked to produce a postcard on the theme of migration and exile. I used the essay 'Namaste' by Nikesh Shula (from The Good Immigrant) as a starting point. 

‘New Routes Old Roots: Literature of Migration and Exile’, a public-facing, arts-based research group that aims to actively encourage scholarly examination of, and public engagement with, the extraordinarily rich and varied oral, written and graphic texts that are written within or reflecting upon the experience of exile and migration.
