[ In my bag ]

 

What would my suitcase contain if I had to leave forever for an unknown destination, with only one certitude: that I won’t be alone? Many different ideological directions are possible in this kind of exercise. Should I equip myself in order to survive, or to preserve certain human values? We have to think about the role we wish to assume within the group. The container being relatively small, each item is vital so must be carefully considered. Of course, our choice of items will be guided by our previous direction in life. For my journey, I wanted to emphasise my identity as a designer. Which objects would permit me to legitimise the designer’s presence in the group. What would describe the designer? He must be curious, autonomous, efficient. An aesthete  and an adviser: universal, critical, resourceful, humanistic, observant and creative.
