Good fences make good neighbors

Wood, felt, projection, audio

2018

This installation connects themes of voyeurism, femininity and idealist

structures of middle-class suburban life. Found footage of families,

lesbian relationships and the everyday appear alongside Christmas

decorations and birthday parties as The Carpenter’s song “Close

To You” plays overhead.

The title is derived from Robert Frost’s poem, Mending Wall.
