"Where the Sofa Ends" began in the summer of 2013 when I was photographing my neighborhood in an effort to better understand my relative place in time. The repetition of abandoned house furniture moving from the private sector to the public realm caught my attention. The couches in particular seemed to take on a new persona as they waited patiently, encompassing the memories they were made from, while concurrently capturing a moment of change in a strangers life.

Discarded furniture out on the curb is the sign of an internal change. What kind of change may be very different from home to home, but the rejected objects always embody a history. Objects found in the home represent who we are. They are byproducts of our economic status, geographical location, personal taste and more. When the private world intersects with the public, by way of objects, there is the potential to understand each other in a basic yet profound way. The fine nuances of how we live out our private lives can seem radically different, however it is the many similarities that keep us united.
