Australian photographer Louis Porter takes us on an exploration of forgettable urban spaces which visibly reflect the memory of an event, often interpreted as acts of violence. Categories range from the rather humorous crap paint jobs to carelessly scrawled harbingers of extremist undertones, suburban swastikas, and the narrative possibilities of signs of a struggle. Porter applies wry cynicism with emergency assembly points, where signage indicates mundane locations to gather in case of calamity. He also scrutinises various discarded objects, from paper aeroplanes to correspondence and dismembered teddies. Includes a text by Porter analysing these disruptions.
