response to ‘Out in Public’

Prior to reading this interview with Natalie Bookchin, I was not familiar with her work,
although it’s right up my alley and really suited the state of mind I am in right now.
I found some of her projects very powerful and engaging, and I tend to be drawn to that type of obsessive anthropological documentary exploring the times we live in.

What I liked most of all and couldn’t put in words until she did it herself, was that unlike other artists who visualise data gathered from the internet, she brings out the individual story. In her works, the individual is not another abstract dot on a map, but has a voice. This voice is heard within a choir, but it is heard.
