Dreams of home and the realities of the foreclosure crisis collide in Dream House. A small suspended house structure  hangs 2 feet above the floor. Viewers walk through doorways at both ends. The woven structure is both porous and concealing, swaying gently as people walk through. Video beams down through the roof of the house, casting a web of shadows and images on the viewers inside and down on the floor. The video imagery is of house building, house losing, and evidence of fairy tales left behind. Intermixed are images that play with gravity, like falling or flying, and impeded motion, like walking through sand or over boulders.
