Colonize

The role of the kitchen in a house provides us with social, familial, and economic information. The kitchen at Pleasant Home is stripped of the history of daily use. As a way to re-populate the kitchen with the notion of use, I made mnemonic dishes of cinnamon. Smell prompts memory and the dishes have a way of eliciting stories of baking and family gatherings.

By giving the viewer the power of memory within an environment that is anchored in the past, as all historic museums are, I aim to shift the power dynamic within the space to the present and towards the visitor.
