mo•bile homes, 2005
Installation at the “Festival Internacional de Arte Contemporaneo,” in Leon, Mexico.
Installation of wearable structures is based on the archetypal image of a house. The wearable tent-like structures are made of canvas with PVC pipe frames and hang from a rusting clothes-drying rack. Participants activate the structures by stepping into them, as if stepping into empty shells. When one house moves it propels the next one to move, each one blindly following the other. mo·bile homes choreographs body movement while exploring the endless and disorienting monotony of sub-urbanization.
