These lockets address the conformity and constriction of the American suburbs. Recognizable suburban portals of outside to inside are recreated in metal and concrete, adding physical and visual weight and reinforcing their burdensome and constrictive nature. Inside the lockets, cast silicone alludes to flesh and symbolizes the way we suppress our natural impulses in order to fit into the suburban mold, and the way that mold imposes upon us. The lockets toy with the viewer's desire to peek inside – the gap in a curtain, a peek through an open window – to attempt a glimpse at the real life breathing inside the aloof, homogeneous structures. Our homes become containers for our humanness under the inconspicuous guise of choice, individuality, and democratic freedom.
