Projekt genbo (Neighbour opposite)

 

Copenhagen, DK, 2003

In this project a small booklet was distributed to all households in a narrow street of Copenhagen, DK. The booklet contained a list of different everyday objects one might put in ones windowsill. Each of these objects were linked to a personal characteristic such as charming, angry, single, stubborn, shy etc. In this manner the booklet functioned as a tool for getting to know ones neighbours just a little bit better by “reading” their windowsills. And also gave the opportunity to stage ones image to the other side of the street.
