A Traditional House

The family album is a key principle of western culture and society, though I consider it is mostly a constructed and false sense of reality. It records what society deems to be the proudest and happiest moments of our lifetime. We only seem to document family holidays, birthdays, graduations and weddings. These images do not seem to be deeply personal but convey a psychological and social need to fit in within society, to portray our family's 'success'. I have modelled a traditional house out of found and forgotten family images to highlight and confront this artificial reality. What is behind the images? Where is death, angst, passion?
