Displaced Habitats II continues to explore the artificiality of an idealist safe haven for animals, in particular the bird park. It is suggested that these parks keep and breeds them for research, education and conservation purposes. However animal rights groups continue to push for the notion of releasing the creatures back into their natural habitats, establishing the artificiality of enclosed spaces with hidden motives of tourism and animal neglect. Perhaps the concrete, man-made cages guised as jungles were never suited for them, bringing us to question whether it is natural.
Displaced Habitats seeks to highlight how these animals are displaced from their natural habitats and put into manufactured spaces and hopes to serve as a reminder, through the typology of the images, of the emptiness and distraught of the animals living in an enclosed, artificial space.
