The workshop that took place at Khoj, Delhi, was part of an international project dealing with the individual in a changing urban environment. Other workshops will be held in Marseilles, France and Helsinki, Finland. The inhabitants of Khirki village neighbourhood first learned some basic video shooting and sound recording skills, after learning some skills they directed their own autoportraits determining the way they wanted to represent themselves. Next they filmed a place that has changed in their neighbourhood, they talked about and recorded the memories and feelings linked to that place. The final work is a video installation – the portraits of people and places filmed in different cities will be connected. New final portraits will be created superposing the images of a person and the place he feels attached to to formulate one image.
