Cultural Empathy / Cultural Exchange

Cultural Empathy
Cultural Empathy

This project explores global relations between the USA and Iraq. It shows how media negatively affects the perception of Middle Eastern civilians, and influences positive change by applying emotional design in an interior. Visitors encounter exhibitions on media, history, and culture, which generate a greater understanding of the citizens of Iraq. They are informed of the conditions for non-combatant Iraqi citizens, which encourages enlightenment and evokes empathy. Overall, there is an in depth look at the holistic reality of Iraq and its people, encouraging peace and promoting cultural understanding between the USA and the Middle East.
