This project reflects my itinerant lifestyle over the past five years. During this span of time, I traveled and participated in artist residences, including one at Kohler Kitchen and Bath Company where I designed vitreous china sinks. I also became a professional house sitter for various friends and relatives across the country and around Europe. I tended to the domesticities of their lives, all the while without a place that I, myself, could actually call home.
In this exhibition at The Design Center - now a gallery, but once a home - I explore ideas of house and home, creating a site-specific installation that incorporates designs I developed in my travels, items from The Center's historic textile collection, new fabrics printed at Philadelphia University, and objects made specifically for this show - clothing, a mural, porcelain jewelry, soft furnishings, and window treatments.
Come explore a "home within a home" in housing project.
