2010 Displacement

View Body of Work

Displacement addresses the image of urbanity and our relationship to the built environment in which we live.  The transformation of environment, understood nostalgically as a shift from natural to man-made, can be experienced as both “place” and “displace”.  The work attempts to question how memories and images live in our conscious and unconscious, affect our ways of seeing and perception of reality, and define our understanding of place.  Rather than being a dramatic narrative, the work questions history, the construction of time as a lineal process, and the distinction between the real and the virtual.
