Open the Black Boxes!

In the era of Coronavirus Vital Space and artist Danae Stratou reactivate the open call by inviting people from around the world to participate once more in the project, by submitting online the One Word which best reflects what threatens them the most, or what they are desperately eager to preserve.  Your input will be fundamental to the success of the project in order to help us understand our collective predicament.

We kindly invite you to Open the Black Boxes!

Participate in your own language by submitting your one word  here

In this time of multiple crises and uncertainty, marked by a global pandemic, economic depression, mass riots, police brutality, raising nationalisms and environmental disaster, we invite you to capture the pulse on the current situation.  The submitted words by people from around the world will be presented digitally as unique innovative infographics that can be filtered by age, gender and country of the participants. Gathered without intermediaries, the words will become an extremely valuable record of our time: raw materials for artists, researchers, and people from every walk of life to make sense of the present crisis and reimagine our future.
