Homebound is a memorial to our relationship with earth as home. It takes inspiration from Maneki-Neko, or “lucky cat,” and deconstructed fruit stands.
Three heads proudly emerge from the ground framing the sun path, lake, and river, mimicking the river’s intersection.
Fruits in disguise are scattered around like offerings on an altar. It is adorned with familiar eyes and photographic artifacts from the artist’s home in Chicago and hometown in Indonesia.
It’s a reminder of the beauty and immeasurable value of where we come from.
