"Every day and age has its rules. We live in a time that urges us to behave as if we are in paradise. Yet the world we live in is no paradise. "
"She wants to go home, but nobody's home.
That's where she lies, broken inside.
With no place to go, no place to go to dry her eyes."
-Avril Lavigne and Ben Moody Nobody's Home
Home, sweet home... most of us dream of owning a warm and cosy (or gorgeous and spacious) house. To help realize and sell, this dream, so called "Housing Parks" have been constructed by developers - clusters of show homes where fictitious happy families live - a perfect husband and wife, beautiful kids, and a gentle grandfather and grandmother.
This project [Nobody's Home] examines this kind of euphoric obsession with homes,
and through moving images explores both the absence and presence of the imaginary perfect family. The homes in these Housing Parks belong to nobody, and none of the family is at home.
