This project has its origins in my personal experience growing up as a “Third Culture Kid”. Third Culture Kids (TCK) are children raised in one or several different cultures than their parents for a significant part of their development years. The act of collecting stories and maintaining memories are crucial for a TCK’s identity.
Rootless roots presents a design solution that assists when communicating with new people and surroundings but also a tool for collecting your memories. A wearable diary or a physical Instagram account ready to be exhibited to your new friends.
