The Cookie Cutter House Project
The Cookie Cutter House Project explores the concept of home, as well as issues on housing and community. This is done through an online exhibition, blog posts, and other artwork I have made or am in the process of making.
The online exhibition features 18 artists/makers from different parts of the US and Canada. Each participant was sent a set of identical house shapes measuring approximately 9″ x 6″. Using at least one of those house shapes, the maker depicted her/his idea of home. In addition, the makers wrote a few lines about their thoughts on the topic then were featured on this blog. Links to the individual posts are below.

Any Back Yard
Any Back Yard was an installation about attracting wildlife to a backyard. It was displayed at the University of the Arts Window on Broad, Philadelphia in the spring of 2006. The card announcing the installation also served as an educational piece. You can read about the installation here.
