HOME. is a series of both wearable ADORNMENTs and sculptural objects that explore being permanently anomalous and building a refuge that offers COMFORT. Small contagious INFLIRTRATions continue to linger with the viewer after the encounter of the work. These tiny REMNANT entities also contaminate those who have not interacted with the glitter dispensing objects, but who have come in contact with someone or something that has. The pieces expose inner vulnerability, often hidden by vibrant manifestations. The objects worn on the body make the wearer into a curiosity by functioning as body extensions, disablers causes of disorientation and/or recognition of OTHERness. With viewer participation the sculptural objects change the viewer's appearance or perception, either by dispensing reminding glitter particles that function as small invasions or by engulfing their surroundings with a new and unexpected milieu. The gaudy and animated nature of the pieces allows the viewer to enter an unknown experience that constructs HOME.
