To this day, the refugal situation on the Mediterranean Sea is critical and dangerous. That’s why the social project 'Navire Avenir' is building a ship to rescue refugees. As part of a Welcome Kit on the ship, 'connected patterns' empowers self-expression and autonomy of refugees in a creative and collective way. From individual, colorful pattern stickers, the refugees jointly create an artwork that represents individuality and community at the same time. To reinforce this image of a future nation, sections of the artwork are used as flags of the ship, sending a powerful message: We are one.
