Iris Poljan_Borrowed Thoughts.jpg

The idea behind the Borrowed Thoughts project was to create an artwork based on thoughts. Thoughts that weren't mine but rather borrowed from others. It started by engaging people, asking them if they would lend me one. To my surprise people were very open to it. So far I collected thoughts from friends, colleagues, acquaintances and strangers. The ones I borrow, I stitch onto a nylon foil. From them, I compose a site-specific installation. The project is ongoing.
