Lost and Found
Lost and Found was a 1,000 square foot installation in the Homepage Café in the Central Library. This life-sized installation showcased quintessential Philadelphia row homes inhabited with over 90 three-dimensional screen printed, stuffed, and sewn objects. From armchairs to frying pans, side tables to Teletubbies, each piece was based on a person’s story of an object that they lost and wished they could still have.
In conjunction with the installation, WHYY’s Peter Crimmins recorded and created audio for viewers to hear the stories of the objects first-hand.
The installation was on view at the library from October 2, 2014 - December 11, 2015 at the Central Library, Home Page Café. Currently the work has been transformed into five removable fabric panels that have been shown at the University of Alabama Huntsville, the Walton Arts Center, and the Windgate Gallery.
