¿Being Home? is a community inspired, site-specific, interactive artwork that changes with each presentation. Initially installed as part of the Embrace! exhibition and acquired by the DAM, ¿Being Home? is an immersive environment made up of colorful word sculptures and mobiles carved in Plexiglas, Styrofoam, and foam. For this reinstallation, Matthies once again uses his highly collaborative process to gather words in many languages through a series of community workshops, turning participants’ words into a new set of sculptural elements within the installation.
¿Being Home? is organized by the DAM in collaboration with the artist.
