This project represents a geographical change that is happening within the city and surrounding suburban areas. "Gated" or "Fortress" communities are beginning to develop an impact on their urban environment and influence the public view of city space. Gated communities are areas which are withdrawn from the eyes of others, something concealed and secret, which instigates an interest in the viewer because they are unknown. Increasing the tension that exists between the familiar and unfamiliar, this installation combines freely available image data information and personal images. To create an omnipotent and omniscient view that is representative of drones taking a critical look at the 'gentrification' and experiences inhabitants could have of this space.
