The Nomadic House Project


The Nomadic House, as a symbol of home and shelter, evokes issues emerging around quarantine, climate crisis, conflict, and displacement. Home for a migrant is a moment of pause, a profound moment of memory, because ‘Home’ for a migrant exists in an interval; between the home that they knew, the nostalgic space, and the home of uncertainty, of self-exile, forced through (often extreme) circumstances to create a home in a foreign land. This journey, accompanied by the unknown, forms a personal and collective cloud that extends across the border, perpetuated by language that separates and dehumanizes, that neglects the dignity and value in one another, and by a lack of language that builds understanding and empathy across the divide.

Along the border between the US and Mexico, this cloud looms particularly densely. Nearly 750 migrant deaths have been reported along the southern border thus far in 2022 alone, an all time record. Water jugs left by and for migrants along the treacherous journey are just one marker of this humanitarian crisis.



Ukrainian Solidarity
Nomadic House

The Nomadic House Project is a mobile installation and open platform for collaboration, solidarity and resistance to both the multi-layered violence in Ukraine and the repetitive and extensive displacement of communities around the globe. We are seeking collaborators to utilize the platform to catalyze dialogue and action to benefit victims of the war both in the immediate and in the aftermath when the conflict no longer occupies the headlines,  supporting displaced peoples trying to restart their lives,  and fostering empathy and connection as transnational citizens.The project is open and active.
