This impetus for this installation was based on my observations of suburban sprawl. Suburban communities are surreal in their design, often times multiplied over and over throughout the United States. While, the communities
themselves are real, there is a sense that the imagined suburban experience is unreal. The interior included hand-printed, patterned wallpaper and the floor was covered in packaging peanuts as a means of protecting the space. A soundtrack
playing in the gallery of ambient neighborhood sounds (automatic garage door closing, a lawn mower, children playing in the park, dogs barking, the thump of a newspaper delivery, and birds chirping) were only slightly disturbed by thunderstorms and gunshots.
