plastic foil, sewing wire

In many areas of the world there is a tradition to have a living-room. Some people leave their living-room neat and untouched, ready to welcome important guests who will maybe never come. It is the standing of the family that is exposed in a room which should be the room they are spending most of their time in. As a child I visited a lot of such rooms at my grandparents an great-grandparents. Nowadays the tradition still exist in a lot of young families. I questioned the tradition by making this work. 'Living' is made out of plastic foil and sewing wire. I packed existing traditional furniture and hang the wrapping on the sealing like puppets.
