Here are a few sketches of some of the "homes".
The homes will be made of aluminum plate and tubing and there will be 6 to 7 of them in a range of sizes and shapes, they will be bunched together in a make-shift village. This work is a part of a series I have been working that addresses my own personal experiences of the inadequacies in affordable housing and issues of lack of safe homes and the number of foreclosed homes in today's negative housing market and poor economy.
Viewers will be able to interact with the works by getting up under and in some of the homes to read statistics about the current housing crisis.
I will be fabricating the works myself at the USM sculpture studios over the 2012 summer.
