This video is a record of a 21-day long project. During the course of this action, I attempted to make myself at home in the homes of the inhabitants of another country. I turned to complete strangers in the city of Hull, England, asking them in public areas, on the streets, and by phone, to permit me to carry out an everyday activity (doing the washing-up, watching TV, tidying up, playing the piano) suggested by them in their home. My acts were recorded by the inhabitants with a handy-cam I gave to them. The series of linked records resulted a video piece, which was presented in my exhibition at the end of my stay in Hull.
