Womb Shelter

The Womb Shelter is a space to return to childhood safety and comfort. Inside are stuffed animals and books, russian and english, from my childhood. In the background, a recording of my mother reading an entry from my great-grandmother’s journal recounting the days and weeks surrounding my birth plays.

The Womb Shelter is an inflatable shelter made of painters plastic bound together with a soldering iron. It measures about 8ft across and 4ft in height.

The structure was made by binding sheets of plastic together with a soldering iron and filling it with air using a box fan.
