KUA02: Displacement explores the displaced ecology from a transnational perspective. The publication's design draws inspiration from cartography, mapping out interconnected transportation routes of human-made and biomasses, namely plastic, animals, toxins, or art objects, that serve human-centric purposes. The book compiles essays, interviews, research materials of artworks, and poetry from contributors who have connections to multiple homelands.

When a displaced subject is placed back into its rightful context, does it cure the displacement? And what or who’s system guides this process? The curated publication asks: if constant movement is the natural order, how does diasporic experiences adding to the discourse of ecology?
