“We used to Jive a bit…”

For my Masters degree show at the Edinburgh College of Art in 2012 I made an installation which was made up of a wall of doors. Behind these doors were illustrated stories of some of Edinburgh’s elderly residents. These stories were collected during a series of conversations while visiting 4 residents of an Edinburgh Care Home. To see more images of the installation please visit  http://www.astridjaekel.com/page4.htm

1awI enjoyed the project so much that I decided to make a book out of these stories and was happy to see it being featured within the local press a couple of days ago:
