Israeli authorities use bureaucracy as a violent tool to phase out the Palestinian population.  4 photographs of a demolition party progressing up the road towards the  dwelling place of a family of nine living in poverty presents the indiscriminate disposal of the inhabitants home.    The 4 times rebuilt house, one of many examples, is consistently met with further demolition illustrating an architecture as activism, proving, however, too traumatic as the families move away.  Palestinians unable to get planning permission face building and risking demolition or not to build and live in cramped, stressful conditions.  An insight into the everyday consequences of politically contesting fields; what is our responsibility to act? how do you cross the threshold from professional to personal?
