“Our home is our base, a place that roots us to the earth, to the city or landscape; it gives us permanence and stability and allows us to build a life around it and within it”
The Meaning of Home, Edwin Heathcote
30 Bird and "public works" brought their artist residency at the LMB to its climactic end by creating a visual and theatrical performance with the participation of the LMB staff and students. The performance centred around a structure made up of a shed of curiosities, the space under the stairs, the parlour, the corridor and the study sitting in the atrium at the LMB building.
Inspired by a year of conversations debating architectural ideas of home in the service of science, the event invited the audience to explore the relationship between scientific research and everyday life in an interdisciplinary transcultural performance.
