Daniel Kaufmann: House Home

House Home 4, Daniel Kaufmann, 36"x43" Archival Pigment Print, 2008

With just three days left to view Redux’s exhibit, Home Again, Home Again, one last question comes to mind, “How does one build a home?” 

Daniel Kaufmann addresses this very question in his series, House Home, a vibrant and dynamic body of work that challenges viewers to explore consumerism and personal identity in a clever way. These digitally constructed rooms are composed of photographic images from the artist’s home and that of his friends with the objects from several home-furnishing catalogs.  Believing that living spaces reflect who we are, Kaufmann states on his website, “I am interested in how ideas such as home and lifestyle are constructed through the objects we choose to buy and display in our homes.”  

We first came across Kaufmann’s work on FlakPhoto.com, an inspiring web publication started by Andy Adams. It is a wonderful resource to photographers and photo enthusiasts worldwide.  Check it out.
