February 16th (Wed) – 20th (Sun), 2011
home sweet home is an installation show in which each audience member purchases their own “house” at the door, and has the opportunity to personalise a house of their choosing and become part of a perfectly formed, miniature, carboard community. This performance is completed when the map is filled with houses that individual participants have decorated as they like, and “Yokohama”, which is special for all the participants, finally emerges.
Neighbours can introduce themselves and explore their community as it develops. They can make decisions on street names and other community issues.
On the final night, when the community construction is complete a street party is held. This is when residents socialise together before taking their miniature house back to their own life size dwelling place.
