Coming Home

Coming Home is a 350 square foot installation of hand drawn, screen printed fabric furniture pieces made for an exhibition at the Philadelphia International Airport, and now part of the permanent collection at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Each of the life-sized furniture pieces were based on interviews of four Philadelphians' descriptions of their childhood homes.

The interviewees come from different neighborhoods, time periods and cultural backgrounds, but each of them have vivid memories of their childhood homes.
