A Home draws attention to the everyday mundane object, and though reminding us of the profusion, collection and accumulation (to the detriment of our landscape), arranged carefully and intimately, we can create our own place.

Weldable shiny items from one home are used to create another, prompting reflection on the undervalued, underpaid labour at the source of these objects and the complex, varied meaning of ‘home' to so many.

Sharp edges poke at the uncomfortable reminder that for many the acquisition of a home is becoming more difficult—if not impossible.

This work is a personal cross-examination of consumerism and personal identity.
