The work explores changing notions about "Being @ HOME". The
aim is to build a space for speculation where people can express their
excitement and/or anxiety about this topic. Contemporary nomadism and
its effect on memory, place and presence intersect with current practices
in architecture and new technologies. Visitors share thoughts in three
archives. The evolving public discourse builds the work's content.
A dwelling made of bread and its parasitic invasion is used to reveal
