What I Mean When I Say I’m Going Home

Dimensions variable

Three-channel audio and sculpture installation composed of televisions, antennas, radios, rosaries handmade out of telephone wire, spiritual artifacts, photographs and letters, psychiatric hospital files, bricks, roofing shingles, clothing, and recordings taken from various sites associated with home or family. Audio: (1) sound of a burning building permeates the space (2) sound of singing comes from and air vent--as if heard from another room (3) periodically an evangelical preacher speaking in tongues pierces the air, from an unplugged tube radio.
