Let the Outside In delves into the fragility of “home”. This project is composed of three elements: a model of a typical northeastern house and two motion-sensor hunting cameras. The house was carefully built, fitted with stained cedar siding, the roof individually shingled, with interior details such as multiple levels, a fireplace and staircases. It was then placed outside in upstate NY and planted with native plants. Weeds and grasses grow up in and around it. The cameras document a variety of animal life moving curiously around it, and also the slow decay of the house. These stills animate a time-lapse video: duration one year, length ten minutes. The sped up year moves through all four seasons, and illustrates the thriving life surrounding the decaying house.
