30/900 is a video installation exploring a once familiar and now estranged everyday landscape of a life left behind. The videos read the fragmented experience of an immigrant going through temporary residencies in a forever-liminal otherness between departure and a promised arrival.

The textual and visual poetry of this space play with concepts such as separation, language attrition, memory, and overall, a reflection on the past and present. It also provides a deeper insight into immigration and displacement by highlighting the invisible and yet resistant negative space surrounding an individual navigating a new land.
