Sonder: The Art of Empathy Though Eavesdropping
Currently on display at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts.
Over the past two years, artist and educator Megan Altieri has gathered fragments of overheard conversations and hand-stamped them on articles of clothing matching those of the speaker. Sonder features these conversational moments, seeking to help us grasp the beautiful complexities of humanity by allowing a momentary escape from our own lens. In exchange for our perspective, we are offered a truer understanding of our identity as a dot among a sea of dots.
