LIMBO

In this project I have tried to explore the feeling of being in a limbo - not really knowing where you are, in what direction you are moving and what is coming. Inspiration for this came from when I worked with asylum seekers at Hong Kong Refugee Advice Centre. Many of the asylum seekers said, without me asking, that they found this in-between state waiting for your decision (which can take several years) really hard. They did not know where their next home would be: if their application is turned down they would be sent back to their country of origin, and if the application is approved they would be sent to a third country.
