'Displaced Persons’ is based on research into migration from and within Syria since 2011. Civil War and unrest has caused 9 million people* to be displaced from their home either to safer regions within the country or as refugees beyond Syria's borders. Expressive hand gestures, layers of projection and animated fingerprints and rubber stamps are combined in this work to express the human forces that cause people to leave their homes, and how temporary communities are created in refugee camps which offer protection for the displaced.
