In every dreamhome a heartache reflects upon the idea that the creation of any idealised space brings with it a concurrent loss of humanity. A disembodied love, adoration or fixation on the perfect home, technology or possession can create a kind of psychosis; a lonely, one-sided kind of relationship between an individual and the longed-for object or architecture. In parallel, the least objectified or idealised things and spaces can sometimes hold the most meaning or significance - and in reality, we often share these collectively, within public space or our shared imagination.
