Jeffrey Wolin – Artwork Statement
"Home" is a short video piece that explores the rootlessness of contemporary American society. It begins with a view of the earth deep in space, spinning on its axis, representing the passage of time. It zooms in on a town just outside New York City where I grew up before moving away to attend college—I never returned to my hometown. The camera zooms in and out of the places I lived that I have called home, with my voice over reflecting upon issues of attachment to a place and what it means to really be "at home" with oneself. "Home" is a collaboration with my son, videographer, Ben Wolin.
