The cedar wood ‘Homehat’ is inspired by the indigenous Haida model for a longhouse where people gather following the excessive gift-giving ceremony of a Potlatch. During such rituals of community and exchange, the ubiquitous headdress’ allow for participants to embody different persona. Here the miniature house is worn publicly as my own gesture to connect to the local culture. During the performance I walk slowly, meditating on the meaning and impact of the mask as the hustle and bustle of the people pass by.
