This work addresses my experiences with home, the instability that I have experienced with maintaining a space to call home for any real stretch of time, and the difficulties associated with constantly moving from place to place. I am currently living in my 20th home, which is a rental apartment in downtown Newark, where rents are in flux and rising rapidly. Phrases like “living amongst strangers”, “an alcoholic den”, “smoke stained walls” and “above a trendy bar” have been my realities in my home experiences over the years.
