Theory vs Reality

On lectures on Direction and Coordination or Preparedness and Planning, we listened attentively to UN professionals who were in Thailand just after the Boxing Day Tsunami in 2004. Those lectures were very emotional.

Today, as a part of my thesis project, I conducted an interview with Edie Fassnidge, a women who witnessed the tsunami and draw a comic about her story of survival – Rinse, Spin, Repeat. A metaphor of┬ábeing struck by a tsunami wave with a being spun in a washing machine is very strong and awakens various feelings.

That’s a very powerful story, although her drawings are not professionally done. The comic is worth reading.
