Coming Home

Coming Home is a 350 square foot installation of hand drawn, screenprinted fabric furniture pieces made for an exhibition in Terminal E in the Philadelphia International Airport. Each of the life-sized furniture pieces are 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. Click on each person's name to learn more about their stories.
