In 2013 he worked in Ethiopia as a VSO volunteer at Addis Ababa University. All the objects and images on display were collected during his time in Ethiopia.

The exhibition is a collaborations between Newcastle University, Addis Ababa University and Voluntary Service Overseas. It is funded by an award from NiCAP – Newcastle University Institute for Creative Arts Practice.
