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 the participant's psychological and physiological relationship to home. Host/Guest relations are established between artist, architects, and people online.

The site features streaming video of architects discussing a social paradigm where technology affects aspects of domestic life in new ways.

I create works that investigate multiple levels of containing space. I address elemental issues of contemporary life to reveal aspects of personal and social space.

I am interested in exploring world making. I question how many worlds are there? What are worlds made of? How are they made? My works represent a continuum of my life experiences in different geographies and languages.The works are structured by a critical approach to notions of frontiers, fields and networks. I investigate these notions in both physical and virtual spaces.
