The mismatch between the national identity given by a country and the actual identity of a person. I wanted a passport to show how I felt: no sense of patriotism, no sense of national identity and a different sense of home. Hotel Sparrow is about being foreign in your own home. The sense of not belonging. The house sparrow has altogether disappeared from London. It remains an unwanted bird. This frustrates the symbolic nature of a bird in history. The birds are placed in the nature offered in the UK passport and provide their fake sense of home.
