I am thinking about the house/home as an envelope, which defines social status. Boundaries, fences and walls are put up to define the inside contents; the home exists because of its walls. I am interested in how these boundaries are drawn: What is inside, what is outside and what is reached for over the fence.

When the skin is peeled away, exposing the flaws of our ambitions, how much of the hope and desire are constructed from myths and dreams.
