In 2016, Mosse visited routes commonly travelled by refugees—from the Persian Gulf to Berlin, and from northern Niger to the now-cleared Jungle camp in Calais, France—and used a military-grade infrared camera to document scenes along the way.

Enclave, alongside other works by Mosse, revolves around the idea that the ubiquity of images from conflict zones has somehow managed to desensitize the society to the mayhems of war.
