Word Portraits, since 2016

I conduct short conversations with unfamiliar persons in a public space, collecting words that are important to these people and generate Word-Portraits as drawings. I transfer the collected words on a larger surface ( wall / large paper) so that other people can expand on the semantic meaning of the words. The result is an exploration of a common Word-Portrait of the participants and the time we live in.
