The notion of community extends itself to a housing project that targets those who are living with AIDS. Each jar translates, through a donated object, the each donor’s individual idea of home. This sculpture seeks to inform the resident and visitor of the spirit of the project. Donated contents range from a worn copy of, Anne Frank’s, Diary of a Young girl – to handwritten recipes for chicken soup.
