The Light and the Heavy 

The Light and the Heavy produced in collaboration with Magali Rifflart-Villeneuve is a collection of tales from Hungary presented as a multi-media installation and a book of the same name. These stories: a journey though shared experiences and dreams in Hungary oscillates between the felt, the imagined and the experienced.

Copies of the book The Light and the Heavy are available upon request. 

Field notes made by Sophie during the development of this project can be read here.
