The stories of the older generation of Shatana’s inhabitants talked of the emptiness of the village. Young families leave to large cities; the sounds of children playing are absent. At the same time the inhabitants talked of ghost stories of the children that used to live in the village a long time ago. Together these inspired me to bring the children back in the form of ghost-like drawings on the walls next to where they might have once played.
