buying home

room 4 ECHOES

Kingston, New York, United States
Home is an ever-accumulating manifestation of the self and the family. We furnish our homes with comforting and exciting objects, remnants and representations of the external world. While the home may arguably be the most intimate, idiosyncratic space, its contents often come from a corporate selection. Stores like Home Depot, Pier 1 Imports, and Bed Bath and Beyond offer a variety of home goods that are easy to find and somewhat reasonably priced. Family members, especially couples, are likely to make furnishing and decorating choices together. Home goods stores seriously impact the experience of home and the general understanding of what home should be and contain. For my sound walk I am interested in exploring the aural dimension of this ostensibly visual cultural practice. I visited a variety of these home goods stores and captured audio snippets of what I predict to be the most common sounds: deliberating conversations, interactions with objects, and aimless wandering. This sound walk provides further information about the corporate facilitation of home production.
