Home is a show about collectivism over individualism. It’s about the holisticism of every seemingly small gesture, action, object, and experience that makes up who we are and what we love. Home is about looking to the natural world for guidance. It’s about leaving and coming back. Home is about deepening and broadening roots. Home is about community. It’s about collaboration and celebration. Home is about working with what we’ve got and showing gratitude for those gifts. It’s about abundance, not scarcity. Home is open arms and a soft landing.
