A silent drama exists in all households, undercurrents that ebb and flow in any family. There is a mystery, a secret, a façade that develops over time, and every once in a while you catch a glimpse of that world. I have become enthralled with the question of what goes on next door, and try to comprehend what I learn about its ambiguous narrative. Utilizing the backdrop of suburban and small-town living, I take the ideal American dream and surround it with the cryptic realities perceived in the public-private space of the yard. The perceptions center around the uncertainty of what has been witnessed, ranging from suspicion of a dark unknown to a sense of loneliness and solitude.
