This piece then evolved into an exercise in turning a structure/shelter into a house/home. Using the same processes I have used to enlarge my figure drawings, I began to furnish the home with paper objects. I added interior walls, an exterior skin, a paper hardwood floor.
As the interior became more accomodating, the exterior views were soothed. An occasional car crash, buzzing street light and barking dog were the only sources of calamity.
Shelter had become home.
