In response to the recent mortgage crisis and their fascination with Tijuana's organic architecture during their years in Southern California, Owen Mundy and Joelle Dietrick scavenged the dumpsters of Tallahassee, FL during fall 2007 and built a temporary installation out of those found materials at the Museum of Fine Arts at Florida State University. Initially planning to note the stories behind related renovation, they instead became intrigued by Tallahassee's zip codes that reflect the continued gentrification of some communities and ghettoization of others.
