About Me

My photo
I am an artist living and working in Lancaster, PA, with my family. The Obsessive Dollhouse is a lengthy investigation into how the home can serve as a surrogate body, a creative haven and as an isolating and insulating space to keep us from feeling other's suffering. This is a self renovation blog. Through construction/ renovation and destruction, through natural and unnatural forces, this blog will document the process. In the end what will be left?

When the Bed Bugs Came

You do not see them.  The bloody sheets in the morning are the only clue.  We cannot leave because we are the hosts.  All fabric has to be washed and dried and put in bags.  The pesticide is sprayed on the undersides of the bed and dresser drawers.  Our home is not our own.  Ashamed.  Trapped.
