This illegal structure roughly constructed by concrete and without any foundations, used to be a store across our street. However, its existence was by no mean accepted by the urban management. Therefore, a bunch of people moved it to a vacant land on the other side of the street. A year passed, it stands there still, quiet and unnoticeable. But several objects left in the house indicated someone’s brief dwelling. Moreover, on it was pasted various kinds of ads.

This story gives away a hint of violence, which is contained in the compulsory removal of the house, the brutal advertisements covering it, and even the rough construction of it. I was appealed by this story and wanted to show my reaction. I shot a photo of this house, then printed copies of it. I then covered the place with my photograph.
