I am fascinated by the image and concept of home as a means to examine questions of place, belonging, memory, nostalgia, and social order. I’m interested in the culturally fabricated universality of what home means and looks like. We use common symbols and cliches to describe “home” in a general sense, even though our specific experiences of what home means and looks like are extremely varied.
As a starting point, I use one of the most basic visual representations of home: the triangle on top of a square. This image has become something akin to the stick-figure version of a house; iconic and elemental even though it doesn’t formally represent the vast majority of houses in the actual world.
