An alien being finds entry into constructed world (via google earth images). 

The piece functions as a commentary on migration, access, and desirability of space. The impetus being the recent publication of the guide to "best places to live" and learning from some one, who lived in "the best place to live", that were I am from, Lagos, is one of Worst places to live second only to Damascus and another city under siege. 

This got me thinking about the "immigration crisis", neocolonialism,  viability of passport and ideas of who is welcome and who is not. I play on the political categorisation term "alien" which is more often how my own black body is read and imagine that I am truly alien from the great beyond.
