Speculation No. 1 & No. 2
Created from 2019 photographs of tent cities in front of vacant neighborhoods in Oakland, California, these collages focus on housing rights and displaced peoples. Considering construction and “reconstruction,” the same-sized images act as bricks, building up to create a warped experience of the environment, emphasizing the presence of the violent and dystopian consequences of housing under neoliberal housing policies.
