I Want

Make one, give one

Your selected image will be optically transferred to a bespoke glass plate through a combination of 20th century engineering and a 19th century photographic process. Then framed and stamped with a personal number of your choice. 

Every order enables a refugee or person who is seeking sanctuary to join a SIM Project workshop and make their own unique artefact to keep and wear.

β€˜In the process we pull a memory out of the phone. This picture allows me to feel the breeze and touch the nature of my homeland.’

– Afghan judge, London 2022

Steps to create


Make a screenshot on your phone that has meaning to you. It might be your home screen, a message from a loved one, a photograph on your camera roll... 


Choose between a gold or silver plated frame for your unique silver gelatin glass print 


Select a personal number to be hand stamped onto the SIM-scale metal back 


An original origami box will be made by our project artist Janahan to hold your precious piece
