there's no place like home

Today I join Brent in New York to try and help rebuild Leonard Woods house and try to convince him to stop sleeping on the gallery floor. It is pretty funny to think that Leonard built his house by hand, then it was torn down, then we rebuilt a version, and now we will be rebuilding that version over and over again. It is a strange methodical memorial I guess, like the original house, but in our case we are building to save not a person but a story (but I guess they are the same thing nowadays really...). Now that I think of it, Brent even built a life size version of Leonard's house out of paper before the one in the yard in order to film a small short that was expanded into Gravity. So many times has this house been rebuilt! The paper house set still lives in the barn! Here is a picture of the very first paper version of Brent's version of Leonard's house!
