Space is mapped and land is filled, through the animation of gps data co-ordinates and interconnected narrative excerpts with trashpickers and members of squatter communities in the Jakarta slums. The animation is a journey around Jakarta to the landfill site at Bantar Gebang, home of the rubbish from the 25million population of Indonesia's capital. The journey explores location, disjunction and flow around the urban environs of Jakarta as it presents the informal economy of the urban periphery in a visually fragmented view of life situated around recycling. The installation gives voice to individual perspectives and narratives connected to reveal migration, transit and experience of the ‘everyday’ of urban peripheries. The physical is displaced by the virtual, the animation of the gps data, the real displaced by the simulated with the voices and experiences of those caught between.
