Windswept takes off as a modest attempt in framing a city’s narrative through pigeon racing in Surabaya. Pigeon racing events are, to date, still affirmed as a gambling practice for the urban working-class society. Windswept endeavours to respond to the displacement of urban peripheries in dealing with a battlefield of ownership using a pigeon-body’s perspective. A surveillance camera is attached onto a racing pigeon’s body as it flies back home to the pigeon house. In less than 5 minutes it frames, consciously or not, the change of the suburban landscape of Surabaya, which is vividly visible, and depicts how Surabaya as a city is now beautifying itself under the shadow of infrastructural development, in the name of “future ideal housing.” In the midst of infrastructural development whose directions become more immeasurable, and through the pigeon-body’s perspective, empty land becomes a signifier of how eviction spreads massively these days.
