#… , 2016
written proposal, draft flag, photographs and takeaway posters, sizes variable
#… is a proposal for tourists and people of ‘a visited’ place to stand in solidarity and explore the utopian potential of tourism. It proposes an expanded role for the tourist beyond the norm of visual consumption, that they/ we can be used as advocates and broadcasters, and that tourism can be ultimate form of collaboration.
#… is proposed as new motif for use at tourist sites and on postcards and other merchandising. Non language specific the #… motif is designed to infiltrate tourism culture and it is hoped that the images, objects and attitudes that it imprints upon will travel globally, mirroring the movement of the modern day traveller.
