Between Us is the central work from my cumulative thesis installation. This piece explores the duality and nuance associated with my ideas of home and comfort and how the physical environment around a home can be a metaphor for interfamilial dynamics. A friend donated the couch to me; its' 25 year past led to its value as a sentimental object.
