Home is a Project reflecting on the delicate balance between nature and culture, and the immaterial and material qualities that make up a “home.” This work is gate several pieces , among these the Igloo is a dome-shaped sculpture composed of layers of books from a defunct US Navy base library, Whose exterior is white, because the pages paper books, in contrast to the interior, revealing colorful bindings from a selection of foreign language dictionaries , medical reference series , geographical studies , and psychology volumes , all laid like bricks in a cylindrical shape . To Lagos, the igloo is both a shelter to protect its inhabitants from nature and a space where knowledge is passed down from one generation to the next. At the same time, it is a fragile structure, vulnerable as man himself. Water House, the exhibit’s second, similarly whimsical piece, is a video projection. Inspired by Lagos’s time in Manhattan, and specifically the water towers that dot the city’s skyline. Water House reverses the concept of the water tank: rather than a structure that holds water in, Lagos’s video follows a structure designed to keep water out, making it a refuge for human life.
