Displacement, Ethics


Displacement is a force that acts upon the body and the environment of those who have been removed from their native contexts and re-placed in a new and unfamiliar one. It is reflected in the way one carries their body and the way they live, but is displacement necessarily a force that must only act upon the displaced? Is there a way to turn it around?

In an increasingly mobile world, more and more people are displaced (in various ways) daily—”placed” actions create division and conflict more often than not. Is it ethical to remain complacent? Displacement, Ethics is an exploration of how to disrupt various levels of interaction and comfort—linguistics/writing, objects, and space.

Displacement, Ethics is an ongoing project.
