“Return is a research project designed for the experimental disclosure and artistic investigation of Amazon’s return infrastructure. Most of the diffuse infrastructure of the company remains hidden from the everyday consumer – and even for the critical observer. Apart from huge Amazon warehouses located in more rural areas, which can sometimes be spotted when travelling along motorways, the process behind those physical occurrences remains veiled. Occasionally, by looking closely, one can recognise the mostly anonymous parcel delivery services that move in white, unlabelled vans in urban areas. A major part of Amazon’s services are outsourced to third party companies, making it hard to track down the course of action and operation of the multinational company. The incentive of this work is to dissolve these roles and reveal the spatial workings of the company.”
