THE LAND OF HOUSE
The Land of House features a half inch tall dog named Cecil, as he sets out on a brave journey into uncertain times. The series began at the beginning of March, 2020, in response to the pandemic spread of Covid-19, and the necessary quarantining and international upheaval that has followed. Underlying the series, is one of my favorite passages from the Tao Te Ching: Without going outside, you may know the whole world. Without looking through the window, you may see the ways of heaven. The further you go, the less you know. Speaking to the theme of quarantine and confinement, I have decided to play with scale to reframe the inevitable, and create a wondrous world of freedom and possibility; one that exists somewhere just past the edge of reality. Cecil wishes you health, hope, courage and a playful reprieve from worry.
