we are interested in the concept of home: what makes it comfortable, how much space you need, and how our experience of our apartments shapes our ideas of home. diana and i decided to build a home together by superimposing floorplans of our existing brooklyn apartments, overlapping and intertwining the walls and furniture of each place to the other. the apartments are represented in actual size, and much of the furniture was placed in the spaces from memory.
