Toni,

I like your idea. Simple and provocative, combining all sorts of found materials (which I am all for, btw). It also brings up the question, how much house do we need? I've seen an interesting home for the homeless that folds up and fits in your pocket. You attach it to a heating duct on the outside of a building and the air inflates it like a balloon and heats it.
I really like seeing "constructions" as illustrations. Thanks

great idea Toni!
thanks for your comment, someone told me that they're sad too. Maybe was the bad day, was a sad sunday.
A big hug!!!

Tim has it right how much home to we really need? How much is need and how much is want? This piece makes one wonder. How insightfull

Wonderful piece!! I love the way you constructed it out of found objects. It truly inspires much thought about space, stuff and what our needs really are. Too much or not enough? What are we each comfortable with?
