TWIN TOURISTS

I present objects from my room on one wall and my sister's room on the other. Separated by oceans and gigantic landmasses, we communicate through Skype, but even when we do so, we lack each other's physical presence.

Our rooms are our homes--they are spaces in which we spend the most time and in which our most precious belongings can be found. What is it like in her room? Through her screen, I am a tourist. She points out landmarks--closet, books, bed--that I can see but not touch.

This is the experience I recreate. You must imagine for yourselves what our rooms might be like. Take a snapshot. Remember the place that was, for an instant, an imaginary home away from home.
