Behind every number is always a person, a history, a work of art. In the migration debate, we tend to transform living human beings into anonymous volumes. 17 000 became a number that at one point made an impression on Skaparkollektivet Forma, a calculation that appeared in the media on how many people were going to be deported from Sweden to Afghanistan. This work was made in order to visualise and understand the number, consisting of 17 000 unique little artworks mounted in wooden frames.
