This mixed media, interactive show takes a look at the concept of the “old maid” in relation to the unrealistic ideal of family life depicted in the television and film of his youth. In his mind though the term is gender interchangeable. For in this time period if Aunt Belle or Uncle Stan were still single in their thirties, they were shown in a sad, comic or sexually subverted light. They were often portrayed spending quiet afternoons and evenings in pursuit of G-rated pleasures creating meticulous, finicky decorative items for a happy home they would never have; as if this activity was enough to satisfy their frustrated physical passions, their unfulfilled romantic dreams.
