Considered the most criminal neighbourhood of Utrecht, the Netherlands, a large chunk of Kanaleneiland was awaiting demolition and subsequently turned into temporal gentrification project that ran from 2010 untill late 2015. I SPY I SPY is a visual journey with Kanaleneiland’s sounds, music and images resulting in a mosaic of memories of its now former residents.
