About This Project

Backwash, is comprised of video “water samples” and ominous footage gathered from Eastern Europe where what is “home” — like every war-torn environment is undermined and ephemeral. These images are counter-posed with monolithic images of the imperial nature of the western United States’ mountains and bodies of water. The work was part of the installation “Turning Home,” installed in the living room of a private residence accompanied by a text intervention on the glass doors of a bookcase, Take Me Oh Home. The third exhibition in this Oak Park, Illinois, home interprets the domicile as a place that is inevitably lost but always sought thereafter.
