The brooch Home was created for I Care A Lot: Middle East Portable Discussion. The concept of the brooch was to emphasize the contrast between the ideas of “land” and “territory” and “home” in an attempt to accentuate the significance of the ability to understand the other’s sense of home. When worn, the three-dimensional piece shifts between word and object, making its meaning more fluid and elusive.
