Dear Hope Street is an interactive installation and workshop for children and adults by Alex Desebrock from Maybe (___) Together.
In Dear Hope Street children google street view a “Hope St” home somewhere in the world. Children choose and draw a picture of a house they like on the front of the postcard and write to them on the back.
All postcards are photographed and placed on-line here before being posted.
Alex asks children to sit in the grey space of a question. Is google streetview a good or bad thing? Is it a way to create connection and empathy with other places, or is it a breach on our privacy? She still doesn’t know.
Alex is interested in empowering children to think big and connecting their voices with strangers.
This is a gift.
