ROOMS TO LET
It's Always Now, 2018, site-specific installation, clothes, carpet padding, wire, wood
Ghost, 2017, plastic bags, and toilet paper/paper towel tubes.
The materials themselves are debris of everyday life. The materials have been strung and hung from the ceiling of the second floor and continue into the downstairs through a hole cut in the floor. They are installed in front of what was once the kitchen cabinets, all that is left now is what remains of the walls and layers of old wall paper telling the history of the house like ghost prints.
Heart, 2017, bed sheets, table clothes, blankets, curtains, and towels encasing chimney. The chimney is the heart of a home; where the warmth is produced. The specific items are materials used to create a home. These items have been used for their original purpose and showed wear; it was time they moved on to become something more. This connects the materials to the life of the house at 5804 Hosmer. It has been used for its intended purpose, a home, and it is now time for it to move on.
