Your answers will be entered into a spreadsheet and may later be incorporated into new creative art / music / performance pieces created by Gabrielle that uplift the words of all our participants, celebrating them.

Over 200 people have participated in the creative research through Invisibility Lab interactions, workshops, performances and creative experiments that have taken place in Berlin, Lisbon, Istanbul, New York, Mexico City, Miami as well as remote parts of Ireland and New England. They have been generous with their time and wisdom as they shared their ideas, theories, and experiences.

Most of the people I talked to said they have felt invisible at some point in their lives, with some stating they feel invisible all the time. More than half said they’d had moments when they wished to be invisible.

I continue to reach more people as I move to online Labs as a response to the invisible threat of novel coronaviruses.
