Trading Places

Trading Places is a soundpiece of young people’s connections to Bankstown.

Trading Places is installed in a custom-built cut out screen that lets people inhabit a stereotyped image of a young person in the Bankstown area even while those stereotypes are blown open by the voices of the young people themselves. The screen is brought to life by a Lebanese young man mad on cars; a young Muslim woman in hijab; a highly fashion conscious Vietnamese young woman; and an African young woman with a younger sibling.
