I walked around the Tel Aviv Central Bus Station wearing a clear plexiglass house on my head and sat down at a terminal bench. I offered cigarettes to the people who surrounded me; the smoke clouded the house, making it more visible and me less so. I painted the Hebrew word ba-by-it (at home) on the house. I then painted the entire house black and remained sitting while people discussed what I was doing. Within the specific social and political context of Israel, the transforming image of the house pointed to several contradictions around the idea of home.
