Return to Home is a series of reconfigured and reimagined domestic spaces from classic television sitcoms and dramas. Using screenshots salvaged from shows as diverse as The Honeymooners, Charles in Charge, and Dynasty, I create photomontages that look beyond the intended rigid, time-based TV narrative. Return to Home places the constructed and sublimated spaces of production sets in focus, renewing the potential of stagnant imagined places.
