Living Room
an art installation by Emily Joy Hodgins

|Artist Statement|

“Living Room” is about relationship – relationship with others, to self, and with the surrounding environment. With this piece I hold up a mirror to highlight for viewers the ways in which we as humans interact with our surroundings, including people. By having the room mirror the movement in the space (and the corresponding effort of the viewer) “Living Room” shows the necessity to work towards building a relationship. “Living Room” invites viewers to live – to make a mark on their world, experience relationships, and see the visual impact of their interactions and social behaviours (or lack of).
