The word home has many connotations. Home is where the heart is. It is a place of comfort and warmth. It can also imply a city, state or country. Home can be a terrifying place, or offer a nostalgic sentiment. Home can be a place of hiding or concealing. Commercial, social, cultural and political issues can also dictate the meaning of home. This work attempts to question these connotations, as well as the definition, and offer a reflection into the viewer's true meaning of home.
 
The billboard structure is used for, and intended to reflect commercialism, and the concept of home as a material object. The Cooper Black font is intended to evoke a nostalgic idea of home. The reflective quality of the mirror-polished stainless steel offers the viewer a  perspective of themselves, and of the world around them, creating an opportunity to contemplate what home means to them.
