Fayann has composed the soundtrack for the district’s flagship installation titled Body As Home that is a timely exploration of self-discovery, identity, migration and search for the meaning of home. Body as Home was shot in four countries, and explores the concept of home in “regard of geographical location and how our identities are formed by our own understanding of home.”

Capturing a moment, with Lynn Barber

“I learned not to trust people; I learned not to believe what they say but to watch what they do; I learned to suspect that anyone and everyone is capable of 'living a lie'. I came to believe that other people - even when you think you know them well - are ultimately unknowable.” Lynn Barber, An Education.

Lynn Barber, by her own admission, has always suffered from a compelling sense of nosiness. An exceptionally inquisitive child she constantly questioned everyone she knew about imitate details of their lives. This talent for nosiness, coupled with her unusual lack of the very English fear of social embarrassment, turned out to be the perfect qualification for a celebrity interviewer.
