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 for the everyday consumer - and even for the critical observer. Apart from huge Amazon warehouses located in more rural areas, which can sometimes be perceived when travelling along motorways, the processes behind those physical instances remain veiled.

Occasionally, by looking closely, one can recognise the mostly anonymous parcel delivery services that move in white, unlabelled vans in urban areas. Most 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 the work is to dissolve these roles and reveal the spatial workings of the company.
