Chronicles of Migration invites viewer participation in order to create narrative content. This accordion book contains 16 extractable image cards, which, when removed, reveal a series of questions (Who, What, Where, etc.). The reader/viewer is prompted to reorganize and interpret the image cards, according to the questions, “to tell the story or stories about migration, historic or contemporary.” The collaged images are intentionally both specific and broad so that a range of interpretations might be evoked. There is no right or wrong way to “tell the story.” Rather, the project seeks to stimulate thoughts and ideas about this crucial topic.
