we are islands now: TO BE ALONE FOR A WHILE TO VALUATE TOGETHER
ISLANDS Solitude is the largest, only remaining taboo. In the meantime, everyone feels abandoned in these fast times and in our big city. In fact, in the city you sometimes want to escape the crowds and retreat for a little rest. This project is about how we sometimes behave like islands. "Islands" is based on the English expression: "no man is an island".
About 18 extremes: feeling lonely or just wanting to be alone, 18 residents and professionals in Noord spoke with each other, came up with ideas and wrote together. These stories and ideas are presented on Duizel. The visitors of Duizel have been able to add something to this at the ISLAND LOKET in exchange for a cup of tea, or to lie on a boat to an island, just to be alone there.
