In-between homes, we are always part of it but never the whole.
In-between homes is an experimental writing and sound installation that deals with the freedom and boundaries of Generation Z, and with searching for home while living in parallel worlds.
The work is based on personal experience of being young, being a part of universe, having the freedom of choice but also questions the restraints that are connected to the Millennial lifestyle that offers so many options.
Hirtenfelder creates pictures through using words and metaphors. She evokes the observer to fall into her world and to define his/her own meaning towards home.

more people. but they are anonymous. just i am an
