Model Home: Family of 4
Video and Sound Interactive Installation
Model Home: Family of 4 explores construction of familial spaces and reconstructing these spaces through memories. Memories become distorted and begin to tell a new story, one that becomes distant from a narrative, moving more closely to convey impressions of emotions. As the narrative of the nuclear family looms as some distant ideal to achieve, the viewer is implanted into the work to exist not only as a voyeur but as a participant. The surveillance of the reconstructed narrative intends to reveal a cultural pressure to maintain an "image" of a family, that may not ever have existed. A "model" home.
