About ‘A House, A Home’:
In the series, A House, A Home, I isolate ubiquitous household objects as a way to begin to investigate the traditions of domestic American life. The interventions and style of photographic capture re-contextualize the objects as a way to challenge conventional domesticity and to pose questions about conformity, consumption, and convenience as staples of our American popular culture.
With the images, I hope to provide a space for the viewer to bring her or his own history and ideas to the dialogue. By transforming the objects into photographic prints, I suggest the potential for rebirth as a commodity in a vastly different market.
