DISPLACEMENT (2004)

Displacement (2004) shows ordinary household effects that have been thrown out on the streets of South Beach, a coastal community in the American state of Florida. Generally they are objects that no one notices, but now that they are outside their normal context they take on a new, surrealistic dimension. Homeless, having lost their original function in the living room or bathroom, they await a new use. Possibly they will be picked up by the garbage truck, or perhaps, because of their relatively good condition, they will be used again in another context. Even as we know nothing of their background, we can only guess at their future, which perhaps includes a whole new lifecycle.
