The idea was birthed from experiencing life where a “home” was never necessarily concrete. The concept of a home was nonexistent, almost poetically - in a way that my life is always somewhat nomadic, driven not by fear but by vulnerability and openness to change. I had left my hometown 6 years ago and haven’t really been home a lot. Whenever I do, which is really once every two years, everything has changed. The furniture’s moved. My brother has moved into my room. The entire city seems foreign. This project reflects exactly how I feel about my hometown. What I had wished would have been permanent seemed more disposable.
