Home: (an excavation) 1984 – 1989

MFA Practicum Installation

Home: (an excavation) 1984-1989.  (2013) Installation.  Hydrastone, fabric, 2×4’s, dirt, pier blocks.

This project was an abstracted reconstruction of a home I lived in from 1984 – 1989. The time in that house held many traumatic experiences and the memory to have a strong hold on life 25/30 years later.  By studying the house, its shape, location and the people in it (my family) through memory, conversation, maps, county records and whatever date I could find, I attempted to change my relationship to the memory in that/of that home and to create a new understanding and new memory of place and time.
