Scattered Homes Without Doors, is a response to the overwhelming problem faced in America; affordable housing. In the framed door, my goal was to show simple A- frames homes represented in colors of happiness, but because the rising cost start to break up, scatter, decrease in size, become abandoned and left floating in the system in our country. The homes continue to scatter on side two but last home becomes whole again. The color of this home is blue like the frame, door knobs and locks. This is the color of hope, for a new system to be set in place and the awareness increases. The A-framed homes have NO doors except two small blue ones suggesting that we need to look at this problem of high rent and unfordable housing issues so more doors can be open, visible and make rental housing affordable to everyone.
