Home Like No Place (2002)

Home Like No Place is an on-line installation space of enchantment, a wonderland somewhere between the Canadian prairies (my homeland) and New York (where I live). This is an interactive game-like space where the visitor is invited into a 'choose-your-own-adventure' scenario. The colour-symbolism of "The Wizard of Oz" film populates a non-linear narrative. Hope (gold), freshness (green), poison and magic (red), and innocence (blue) colour the post-industrial landscape. Here there is no end and no beginning, no resolution and no moral. The visitor is further invited to write their own piece of the story - a process which will allow the story to change and grow over time.
