Description:


This kit is an exploration of the term 'diaspora' as it refers to people forced to leave their ethnic homeland and the scattering of seeds. A folded map situates the state of the world’s displaced populations based on data obtained from the UN High Commisioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Postcards document the urgency of the refugee's situation. Seed packets convey information about the world's most watched refugee populations and suggest means for their resettlement.
