The piece “We are all wanderers” explores symbolic connotations of home, suggesting we symbolically carry our home with us wherever we go, allowing it to influence how we perceive and interact with the world around us.
The piece is inspired by a passage from American Philosopher, Michael Allen Foxe’s, “Home: A Short Introduction” (2016). Fox discusses psychological concepts of home, suggesting:
“We are all wanderers. We symbolically carry our homes on our backs, like turtles, snails, and crustaceans—for the meanings and associations of home are always with us and affect our orientation in space and time, and how we negotiate our way through the world.”
