The house is a machine for living” Le Corbusier, 1923

The home intended as a “machine” in the sense of mechanism, a tool for life that resides in being itself of man.
Pass Home, is the starting point of Machine à habiter. With images of the individual-home-anchor I worked on the material collected, the small parts every day and I drew with newspaper clippings, memories of people, places, dreams, hopes and differences, moving between documentation and reinterpretation.
The ideal of “home-anchor” is well evoked in this album-sequences of drawing collages, the only element that gives concrete is the desire to preserve a moment, a miniature of life.
