The Burrow (H.H.) is an on-site installation created for Open Source Gallery, a former garage located in Park Slope, Brooklyn.  Working with photographs from Portrait of the Crisis, and using materials found in the surrounding neighborhood, the installation repurposes the gallery as a transitional living space.

  The title of the project is taken from The Burrow, a Kafka story told from the perspective of a compulsive character who describes with pride the concealed burrow he has built to protect himself.

  By restricting physical access to the space, the project relegates viewers to be voyeurs, to be on the outside, prompting them to consider their own relationship to the imagined life inside.
