Look What I Snitched From Your Home

A collection of meddling acts carried out while house sitting or subletting another’s home. For nine months, beginning in the autumn of 2007, I lived in other people’s homes staying no longer then three weeks in each.

Once I develop a sense of intimacy with the homeowner’s world, I modify or subvert some physical aspect of their environment. I may reorganize their library by colour or replace a displayed photograph with one that I have cast myself as the original subject. In these ways, I am able to penetrate the actual resident’s sense of private space.

Later I brought these items to Brick Lane Market, inviting the homeowners to this exhibition.
