“A chair is still a chair, even when there's no one sittin' there

But a chair is not a house and a house is not a home.

[... ]

A room is still a room, oh, even when there's nothin' there but gloom

But a room is not a house and a house is not a home.” - lyrics from A House is Not A Home (song) ​​1964

A multimedia exhibition and happening spanning design, gastronomy, performance/installation and photography.
