Originally intended to cover the small house I was living in, over the time it took to complete this piece it's purpose evolved to what I considered a larger calling. This final installation replicates the cabin that Henry David Thoreau built at Walden Pond. Based on the 10 x 15 x 13'H original dimensions, this work became the shelter I had been seeking for so long - a place of respite and contemplation.

Future plans involve traveling throughout the country during the summer of 2012 and erecting (and photographing) the shelter in a variety of locations - equally a testament to the warmth and impermanence of 'home'.
