    Documenting hope boulevard talks about a story of displacement. The small clay figures are the protagonists of the sculpture, who take the role of displaced individuals (including internally displaced people). They are walking on piece of wood, which balances between the ground and the air. If they keep walking they do not know what they will find. All they can see is emptiness, the unknown. They are shaped in such a way that their facial characteristics are not there. It is a comment on how the media is treating these people. By presenting them only as numbers they automatically create a distance between the viewer or the reader, who becomes unable to empathize.
