          The Displacement Downtown is web experiment designed to introduce viewers to the complex issue of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), who live beyond their neighbourhoods, borders and newsreels. The project plays with the concept of the viewers ‘home’ - wherever that may be - using local imagery and events to build connection and empathy with IDPs who have been forced from their own homes by disaster, violence and conflict.

          The project is initally presented in a video-like format - a ’story mode’ - which has a similar feel to a music video (with audio via the SoundCloud widget/API). However unlike a standard video, the project is built using web standards, which allows it to double as a set of interactive pieces that users can revisit and explore in their own time after the story mode plays out.

          Each digital experience is generated from the viewer's location (i.e. geolocated coordinates) and to a lessor extent, their time of day. These two data points are used to construct a sense of the ‘familiar' for each viewer, primarily through imagery from their own neighbourhood that is dynamically scraped via Flickr and Google Streetview APIs. In theory, the experience will be different for everyone.
