Each of our possessions has its own private story, a memory associated to it and, just the same way in which we grow and change, our personal belongings change, we get rid of some stuff but we resist losing much of it, we could easily picture ourselves through our possessions.
All I Own House is a project that materialises the interior of a house through its inhabitant personal belongings.
All I Own House materialises the interior of Yolanda R. Pila’s house through her personal belongings. But these objects, such as Yolanda, would never stand still, they move around with her, accompanying her way through the day; early in the morning all the books wake up and place themselves together with all the clothing stuff, bed disappears and, just as she is having a coffee, books and clothes move fast approaching the kitchen area in order to make room for shower.
Around mid-morning she has an appointment with a client; all the crockery, carefully tidy, starts to put itself close to the kitchen, nearby all the cutlery and the rest of the cookware. Books are now showing off, very proud, the big round blackboard is now getting ready for the meeting…
