Light House

Within this lamp, a vivid miniature scene comes to life. The 1:200 scale house is modelled after the only remaining heritage house along Markham Street on a site being redeveloped into condos, evoking ideas of resilience despite one’s changing surroundings, and resistance against the powers that be. Encased within its own tiny world, appearing quaint and storybook-like in nature, “home” in a generic sense is depicted as an archetype of refuge amidst the chaos of the world outside.
