These images of ordinary houses are transformed from photographs

of specific houses to symbolic representations through the use

of selective focus. The only specific reference to reality in these images

is through the title (which refers to the location of the actual house).

All details in the photographs are thrown out of focus, leaving behind

indications of the ground, the building’s structure, and the sky.

The photographs reduce each house to the essential elements

that define its form. I am interested in exploring ways in which our world

is not normally seen and how we comprehend images without the details

we are accustomed to seeing.
