She dreamt of a house with five rooms (2007-8)
She dreamt of a house with five rooms is a non-linear tale told in objects, a fluid portrait of person and place. Inside its handmade, archival inkjet printed shoebox container are five found and altered domestic objects, some wearing letterpress printed narrative labels, another sporting hand embroidered text and others residing in letterpress printed, handcrafted packaging. These artifacts of dreams and desires are the repositories of a coming-of-age tale, portals into a place and time existing only in recollection and imaginings. Mixed media. Shoebox: approximately 4” x 11” x 7” closed. Edition of ten. $835.
