Based on the theme of guilt, The Grey Area is the story of myself and a number of friends having a snowball fight at the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin.
Would the survivors of the Holocaust, think a snowball fight at the Memorial in Berlin, as deeply disrespectful. In a place so abstract and vast, which has been designed to disorientate, would they disapprove? I feel guilty but I am uncertain to what level that guilt is. It is a grey area literally and figuratively speaking.
I wanted to incorporate some of the main design aspects of the memorial to give the audience some sort of insight into what it’s like. The dust cover consists of a fold out A2 poster, which has a grid of 2,711 blocks or stelae, the exact number of the memorial, to represent its sheer scale and abstract nature.
