In the end, it is about residue and the evidence of what remains. A postcard sent home that perhaps never reaches; a discarded glove that eerily indicates signs of life and an apocalyptic landscape anticipating a haunting future suffused with smoke and ash. How is an intervention possible when time has run out? Can one subtract from experiences in order to save time? When location is a labyrinthine entity, the act of imaging presents a radical doubt. What is a utopia but bereft of reality; what is displacement, but a return to centre?
