Homesĭtē is a collaborative art installation by Joyce Dallal and Lauren M. Kasmer. It is a public participatory piece exploring ideas of home in relation to the city of Los Angeles. Homesite was originally funded by a Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Grant and has been exhibited at such diverse venues as a shopping mall, a cafe, a school, and a theater lobby, as well as galleries and museums. It is a continuing project to create a changing collective statement about the city.
In 2009, it was updated for the exhibition "Actions, Conversations, and Intersections" at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery with the addition of a clothing exchange and recipe exchange, extending the notion of home beyond location.
