The family is a microcosm of human relations. The inequalities, insularity, and boundary disputes that govern our international relationships are folded into the social architecture of our homes. Without much digging we find the basic tenets of human relations running unmonitored through the drone of our everyday lives. As we eat, wake, sleep, clean and work, we involve ourselves in a mesmerizing ritual that connects us to the larger human condition. The unpaid labor of the home opens a space for creativity much as the unpaid labor of the artist does.
