Dreams in Transition
By Thanee Rene Andino Mejía
Dreams in Transition uncovers a world of possibilities when combining textiles and AR - Augmented reality technology, reaching a potential to expose social and cultural realities. The project explores the significance of semiosis in the materials used, technology, and how popular culture influences the young generation. The aim is to strengthen identities by advocating, supporting, and motivating young cross-cultural female representation.
Their participation is essential to experience belonging in the local and large communities, building mutual trust between groups in society. The effect is to enhance the sense of individuality and represent young women in a multidimensional approach rather than merely as immigrant women. The project embraces their complex identities and invites others to do the same.
