'They hate us and we love it' is a quote taken from a documentary about gentrification which focusses on the materialistic aspirations of the upwardly mobile, whom in part enjoy the potential envy and resentment that their own success breeds amongst their friends and peers. The contrast between the freshly cut contemporary graffiti letters framed in an old broken antique frame emphasises the frequent contrast between old and new, poor and rich. The jumbled composition of the letters reflects the confused eclecticism that often results from gentrification.
