LAW OF THE JOURNEY
PLAY

LAW OF THE JOURNEY is an animation reflecting the perilous journeys undertaken by refugees. Inflated rafts and countless human figures embark on journeys with no beginning or end. Since 2014, more than 14,000 migrants have died in the Mediterranean Sea according to the UN’s International Organization for Migration (IOM).

Law of the Journey, 2016

Law of the Journey (Prototype B) is one of three prototypes developed in 2016. A larger installation titled Law of the Journey was exhibited at the National Gallery in Prague in 2017. The work is composed of an inflatable boat and inflatable larger-than-life figures in PVC. The boat mirrors those used by refugees on the dangerous sea journeys attempted to reach Europe.
