This is another image from the Displaced Studios project. Here, the simultaneous seamless yet abrupt shift over time is represented by the architecture of the museum. I’ve imposed my mark into this site by suggesting a potential future architectural edition.

Displaced Studios involves multiple activities linked by a relationship to travel and tourism, and by the fact that all work is made whilst travelling. The project is based on the premise that the traveller acts as observer, occupying a position outside the society. The significance of tourism here presents a condition of revealing aspects of normal practices which might otherwise remain opaque. In the position of the tourist even the ordinary is reflected in the light of the unfamiliar. In this way Displaced Studios becomes a model for understanding society.
