Unsettling: Reexaminations of Home
Unsettling: Reexaminations of Home

As divisive US government policies increasingly emphasize the legal definitions of residency, citizenship, and origin, the concept of Home undergoes complex reframing. Unsettling: Reexaminations of Home will explore topics related to the shifting, at times contradictory definitions of home: as a place of origin defined by borders and familial or cultural lineage; as spaces of safety and belonging that move with people as they migrate or face displacement due to political, personal, or natural circumstances; and as non-places located in community interactions rather than specific sites.

"I explore the nature of a specific Egregore, a shared cultural psychic experience, which manifests itself as a specific thought-form among the people(s) of the ancient, arid and dusty Steppes between the Caspian Sea, Baikonur and Altai in today’s Kazakhstan."
