Across the gallery, Sang-Mi Yoo’s installation Anomalous Traces (2013) reflects upon the homogeneity of tract homes by condensing them into a pattern. The three-piece installation included a wall-mounted felt panel, laser-cut with a pattern of tract house blueprints, and two long paper works that billowed from the ceiling—one a digitally manipulated scan of the felt panel, the other hand-cut with perforations among housing diagrams pulled from brochures for the cookie-cutter “dream homes” that fill American suburbs. Yoo immigrated to the United States as a child from South Korea, and these neighborhoods connote nostalgic notions of home.
