What has developed over a period of time are a number of divergent strands of conversation that skirt themes of connection, belonging and global citizenship. Daniel is interested in our psychological relationship to each other. What are the origins, ramifications and consequences of these relationships? How are these relationships changing in an increasingly connected but seemingly divided world?
Daniel’s upcoming work for the Mission Gallery is informed by his return trip to the area of the former migrant camp in Calais known as the Jungle. Daniel first visited the area in August 2015 and returns to contemplate the site following its erasure.
