    Referencing minimalist form and modern architecture, this installation touches upon a darker, more complex side to domesticity and the suburban dream. A large rectangular lightbox is left blank. A modernist structure is filled with building debris, decaying plants, and an unwrapped painting. A model of a suburban ranch home stands abandoned in a vitrine. Here, the dream home is left unfinished, empty and deserted.
