For Sale

 

 

 

        During a train ride from New Brunswick, New Jersey to New York City, I passed through numerous neighborhoods and small towns organized into rows of houses and businesses that all looked very similar.  I began to think about how much we try to pack everything into such a small area.  I begun to also consider the neighborhoods in the suburb I grew up in.  The houses were not only grouped tightly together, all of them looked the same.

         This piece was created to question the increase in urbanization around us and our own search for individuality when everything around us is the same.  The houses are arranged like a conveyer belt and leave the viewer to question whether they are coming or going.  The size of each house in relation to the viewer will show that in essence we have the power to keep this from happening.
