The idea of home is shifting from the previous idea of the American dream, to a new, unordered attempt at finding comfort within a new set of boundaries. These boundaries exist both in our mind and in our built environment with each affecting and forming one another. Lindsay Palmer and Casey McGuire are both constructing works that approach the surface of what is, and could be, this new sense of the hybrid narrative.  Found materials address the ideas of memory, survival, and change. Temporal materials that embody the adaptation and change of home, gender, and landform boundaries are the basis for how both artists see similarities in their translation of our ever-changing world. – Casey McGuire and Lindsay Palmer
