For the past two years, we have developed conversations about what it means to feel at home, conversations that took place around familiar objects and images. We have revisited the genre of the still life, referring back to the xenia, paintings and mosaics decorating the walls and floors of the room in which wealthy ancient Greeks welcomed their guests for a first meal. The time frame of this collaborative work allowed for a meshwork of relations to form between very diverse people gathering together to learn a common language. The English art historical term for a group portrait is conversation piece. Conversation piece is the title of a short film produced with the project participants .
