Homesite is a multi-media site specific traveling installation, with a variety of components which included public participation, created as a changing collective statement about the city. The piece provided a framework for residents of the city to add their own perspective by contributing stories, statements, visual items, and small tableaus. The original Homesite was a collaboration of Lauren Kasmer and Joyce Dallal, partially funded by a Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Grant. It was exhibited at such diverse venues as a retail shopping malls, commercial centers, a cafe, a theater, public gallery and museum.
