(16) 5Hundred Lives Without Debt


5hundred lives without debt ( 5ร้อยชาติปราศจากหนี้ ; 2016) was a site-specific, interactive prototype at Wat Buddha Thai Thavorn Vanaram Temple, in Elmhurst, Queens NY. As a 1-year nationwide mourning period was established in Thailand late 2016, temple visitors in Queens experienced a 3D environment on a TV monitor alongside sermons and prayers. Between folk rituals, communal preaching and state-sponsored grief, "5hundred lives without debt" infiltrates diasporic places of memorabilia.

Showcased at for the Gray Space Area Festival, alongside Meriem Bennani & Orian Barki, American Artist, Bassem Saad, E.Jane, Olivia McKayla Ross.
