Homes(from memory) 1974-1992 is a collection of architectural plans of each of the homes that I lived in as a child and young adult drawn from memory. Since I have no recollection of the houses in their entirety, I created one (or and outline of one) by compiling disparate recollections. Since I lacked a complete memory of most of the houses many are left incomplete or individual rooms had to be drawn away from the body of the house. Each memory would alter the scale and placement of the rooms that I had already drawn and can be seen in the faint erasure marks on the paper.
