  1. I’m not sure how my concerns relate to the concepts of home and displacement. I’m worried about anyone being homeless or displaced, and I’m aware that home relates to being safe. I guess the art I would be doing would be photography, since that’s the class I’m in when it comes to art. I don’t think my work would affect the global community though. My platform is not large enough for anyone to notice.
