  • IN MEMORY OF ATHIRAMAN KANNAN

    • May 2011 to Present
    Team Members: TRENTON OLDFIELD

    On the 11th May 2011 news channels reported that a man, later to be named Athiraman Kannan, had the previous day, jumped to his death from the 147th floor of the world's tallest building; the Burji Khalifa. From India, he came to Dubai to work. He cleaned the newly opened building. In an attempt to honour Athiraman Kannan, and his courageous call for attention to the lives of migrant workers, that afternoon I photographed what I had in previous weeks started to describe as a 'pop out city'. These spaces were described to me by the domestic workers who made them, as an attempt at permanency, comfort and retreat in an always vulnerable and precarious life as a migrant worker. Unlike the families they work for, whose life exists almost entirely behind these walls, their lives exist on the street, which is forging new notions 'the public' in city largely concerned with 'privacy'. Part of a forthcoming book on early 21st century migrant workers. Selection to be exhibited in 2012 within Werker Magazine.

  • THE GREAT ESCAPE

    • March 2001 to Present
    Team Members: TRENTON OLDFIELD

    Forthcoming book explores how we came to understand and employ conceptions of property, specifically 'land ownership'. The book highlights attempts at enclosure from Mesopotamia, European empires and contemporary cities whilst showing how 'we' have continued, philosophically and practically to pull down fences, walls, wire and lasers.

    Team Members: TRENTON OLDFIELD, cristina cerulli, Andrea Luka Zimmerman, Myrdle Court Press, Lasse Johansson, Paul Hallam, Deepa Naik, Victor Buchli
