A pedagogical Installation working with graduate student Jacquelin Heichert and undergraduate Dasha Valakhanovitch.
This installation was inspired by the Artist book "When you die who will you leave your stuff to?" The book work starts by simply listing everyday objects and things that we are surrounded by in the world. The first words begin with blank book, loose leaf,pen, eraser, and continues to list the inifite number of possessions we accumulate and use throughout our lives. In this work we question the value and meaning of all that we accumulate. This bookwork is surrounded by a series of fragile shelters where we fill and store all of our possessions. Like a bird's eye view on a neighbourhood these houses become infinitely full of people, places and things.
