The project presents a destabilizing atmosphere - from the slanted steel grated floor, stones stuck in the grid and some visible through the floor, flag-like posts, snake-like roping, to the video which depicts workers/prisoners removing a tile roof from inside - images of imprisonment and uprising and escape.

This work presents an ironic collision between the natural and the foreign with regard to both technology and displacement. iPhones are compared to primitive stone tools in a vitrine. An accompanying video shows a young woman (always without her face showing), walking around a city carrying a stone tool similarly to the way one would carry a cell phone, in plain view. In another video piece, the edge of an Macbook Air laptop, with ax handle attached, is sharpened using traditional hand-sharpening techniques with a wet stone. Then an apple is sliced in half to demonstrate its sharpness. The laptop is also on display in a vitrine. Another project documents Japanese Snow Monkeys displaced to Texas.
