How can I reclaim a memory, where objects are lost and access to places is denied? Remembering is not a purely cognitive process, because our body can trigger memories when we make a gesture, move across a space or touch an object. The HOME-project is a collection of personal stories about lost homes. Recordings of intimate memories of places are projected onto generic architectural models. These models act as placeholders for the houses that were lost. This way ‘HOME’ creates factual sites of memories by proxy.

The HOME project encompasses over 60 interviews with artists, architects, historians, and writers. They speak about memories of places and homes within a framework of post-colonialism.

The publication HOME: Architecture of Memory (YSP, 2012) documents the project.
