The Hostile Environment is an exhibition and satirical video series exploring the absurdity of the current immigration system. In 2012 Theresa May proclaimed that “The aim is to create here in Britain a really hostile environment for illegal migration” By using a range of Arduino and Code-based devices, the audience can experience the hostile environment through the eyes of a migrant. Designed specifically to engage the public in reassessing their understanding of migration, from a perspective not driven by politics and superficial quotas to a perspective focused on human impact.
