link and learn

June 2, 2021

My Mum sends me all kinds of links to interesting talks, gallery openings, and articles as well as photos of flamingos, flowery wallpaper and old women hugging elephants. Yesterday, she sent me a link to London’s first floating swimming pool, an 82 footer, suspended 115 feet in the air. Yikes. She also sent me a link to the Human Library, where instead of books, real people with real stories are on loan to readers. Each person has a title, “military kid,” “refugee,” “deaf & blind,” “homeless,” “naturist,” and a stereotype to dispel. Through conversation, this project aims to challenge stereotypes and prejudices –– don’t judge a book by it’s cover –– and give voice to the otherwise voiceless. Who knows what I’ll get today. A field of Zinnias? An albino peacock inside an Indian palace?
