Dwelling is funded in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional funding provided by the Boston Foundation for Architecture and individual donors.
Three small dwellings, nestled in hidden spaces, offer glimpses of the character and experience of imagined occupants. Walsh imagines spaces for poets Anne Sexton and ee cummings, both buried at Forest Hills. Sextons Room is tucked into a space at the end of a stone wall. Treehive is perched in the branches of a small crab-apple tree. The third dwelling hides in a niche formed when a large canopy tree healed. It refers to the stubborn persistence of what has gone, the history of a person or place manifested in the physical traces it leaves behind.
Homes and buildings offer more than shelter; they are containers for our memories, dreams, desires, and struggles.
