At Home

Wearing a clear Plexiglas house on my head I unrolled a large carpet of fake grass that took up more than half the floor space (12′ x 25′ / 3.7m x 7.6m). This forced the audience to be displaced to the sides of the room.  I outlined the perimeter of this rectangle in blue chalk powder and, after cutting out a small rectangular shape large enough to stand on, I rerolled the carpet. Standing on the remaining green island, I attached small plastic animals to myself and the house and I smoked a cigarette in the house. As the smoke became suffocating, I drew a door and windows to “let the smoke out”.
