Artist Statement:


    Viewers of this interactive CD-ROM are invited to enter what seems to be a typical hotel room. As they navigate through the room, they encounter several objects, some personal (private) and others impersonal (public). When they are touched, many of the personal artifacts (a suitcase, a book, a day-timer), reveal stories, memories, conversations, or images. With each experience, viewers become more involved in and acquainted with how the two roommates are negotiating private and public space within the hotel room – a space that is inherently public, yet when inhabited takes on a private dimension. The hotel room functions as a metaphor for engaging questions about privacy, communication, boundaries, trust.
