but basically, one disfunctional family, usually kept behind closed doors in the private home, presented to the publin on a construction site where they are either a developing family or a dilapidating family..
everyone is given a role at birth.

Hey Jess,

Great developing body of work! I love what you wrote in your journal about it and I look forward to seeing more.

Only one thing that kinda gets to me. Although it is all a matter of perspective and interpretation. This line, and others like it: "everyone is given a role at birth"

I tend to disagree. I believe that, though we may have inherent traits that define us and are inescapable, and we may be somewhat molded by our environment and our parents, we also create ourselves. Or at least, we have the potential to do so. I think that self-creation may be the "role" we are each given and it just depends on whether or not we choose to accept that role.

I guess, in other words, I'd like to see a flip-side continuation of this project where the individuals step outside the box of "norms" and "conditioning" and "practiced apathy" and make the changes they think only exist in their dreams. (In your beautiful metaphoric style, of course!)

Hope you're well and loving life.
All the best,

hi Gitta, thanks for the comments.

but yes, that is what defines the role straight from birth, the way we are molded by our parents, the way they treat you, by your sex, as soon as yo u are born. get it?

thanks i hope ur work is going well too.
