‘Home’ exists as one of the most familiar words in the English language with little need for interpretation. ‘Home’ is seen as something comforting and cozy, or even a place of vivid motion, even if we don’t always see it that way. Think about it, just by getting ready for the day you have already interacted with more than a couple materials. Whether it be getting out of bed, brushing your teeth, or eating a bowl of cereal, you’ve already interacted with numerous materials. These actions are so engraved in our minds they seem almost secondary, often eluding to the question: What if we were these materials?

What if we were the bedsheets, razor, or refrigerator? Would our every day interactions suddenly become more violent when personified and symbolized? Is life itself a series of sinister undertones from that which we are used to?
