I Am At Home

private space, public spaceAsnate Bockis

Life in th city- all the activities and fuss of a social active person can sometimes leave one frustrated and tired or even unhappy and and afraid of himself and his surroundings. This rootless feeling very often occurs when public space shamelessly breaks in into private space. In this kind of situation there's a feeling that you want to dissapar in a very blink of an eye and retreat to the safest place in the world- under your blanket, where nobody can harm you. I am at Home is a piece that acts as a temporary shelter, an improvised private space where, in case of emergency, anyone can get back to his lost place of peace, to regain his confidence and clear his mind.
