Walter Benjamin said  "The tradition of the oppressed teaches us that the 'state of emergency' in which we live is not the exception but the rule." Life has become a constant "state of emergency", where people struggle for significance in an untenable universal dynamism.

The body of work depicts society as a system of constant interaction and movement within the city; an exploration of the urban area as juxtapositions of people, mass, and industry. Along with the development of technology and city infrastructure, people became anonymous objects, living closely but separately in an alienated existence.
