H/O/M/E

Sculpture piece made out of furniture that has been collected from street in West Philadelphia. 

Human behavior of throwing furniture away on the street with some hope someone will take and make use of it is such an intriguing phenomena. There is some emotional quality to it and I tried to capture that through this work. 

As I've collected a couple of cabinets and drawer, I destroyed each pieces with hummer to get small wooden pieces; thereafter, put each broken pieces together to create this configuration without any added wooden glue or screw. Thus, it stands but at the same time, it's not.
