Girmit - Multi-dimensional Heirlooms 3D Models
An object has the ability to unlock a hidden history, in ways that are unimaginable. Numerous TV shows and films focus on periods of history through the discovery of archaeological objects, a piece of jewelry, or furniture passed down through generations.
With communities and families displaced by famine, war or migration, these objects are far less likely to physically exist. Yet through our process of oral history, deep research into archives and storytelling we discover the memories of these objects.
The following Multi-dimensional Heirlooms, presented as 3D illustrations, demonstrate the power of memory. Each object has been carefully selected as an important feature of each part of the journey of migration.
