HOMe-hOUSE 8 – Dressed Descending a Staircase
HOMe-hOUSE 6 showed me how much I use the stairs during each day, and I was pleased when I moved to 39 that in the last renovation they had opened them up. Originally the staircase would have been blocked in with a door at the foot of the stairs, as other houses still have. But this lightens and extends the living room.
My title for this self-portrait image, Dressed Descending a Staircase, refers to Marcel Duchamp’s art changing painting Nude Descending a Staircase (No.2), which I remember seeing in Philadelphia, I felt that even for the sake of art it was better I was dressed.
