Save Our Souls description

“Save Our Souls” is a response to the current global refugee crisis that the world is facing. It proposes the re-use of a by-product of this crisis which is the common life jacket. In the past months more than 450000 discarded life jackets have accumulated on the Greek island of Lesbos alone.

“Save Our Souls” proposes a re-appropriation of these jackets to provide low-cost temporary shelters to further help refugees.

Walk in silence,
Don’t walk away, in silence.
See the danger,
Always danger,
Endless talking,
Life rebuilding,
Don’t walk away.

Walk in silence,
Don’t turn away, in silence.
Your confusion,
My illusion,
Worn like a mask of self-hate,
Confronts and then dies.
Don’t walk away.

People like you find it easy,
Naked to see,
Walking on air.
Hunting by the rivers,
Through the streets,
Every corner abandoned too soon,
Set down with due care.
Don’t walk away, in silence,
Don’t walk away.

– ATHMOSPHERE (JOY DIVISION)
