This project focuses on private in public dialogue that alludes to the many facets and politics of urban living spaces. Certain landscapes go through significant transformations through years of removal, re-construction and erasure. This dichotomy of visual remnants is a phenomenon of cultural resistance to the violence of displacement and redevelopment.
