During a recent residency, I reconstructed my daughter’s dollhouse out of plastic building blocks. This model of a model became a way to create a home away from home for myself. In my preparations for return, I had to destroy the dollhouse I had built. In doing so I created Closed for Renovations, which reopens nightly 6pm – Midnight.
