Common Place, a collaborative installation by Beth Brandon, Samantha Margherita and Luren Jenison
Common Place investigates the essence of our urge to create personalized interior spaces. Through a combination of necessity, comfort, values, and aesthetics, we build our homes from the physical and cultural matter we find outdoors. An extension of body and spirit,the home becomes a miniaturization of our outer landscape, as well as the platform from which we view it.
In contemporary American culture, it is easy enough to live a life detached from the source and manufacture of everyday amenities. Common Place emphasizes that the home and its contents are culled and crafted from the wild. Comprised mainly of move-able parts, the installation invites gallery visitors to engage playfully and intentionally with their immediate surroundings. In this way, each participant is given the opportunity to craft a personal world within a public context
