Our notions of what makes a place “home” are as varied as we are. Photographer Jess Horn is a bit of a tumbleweed – spending a great deal of time on the road. Horn met Material Culture contributor Gianofer Fields in Madison's Tenney Park by the duck pond and explained that even though home isn’t confined to one place, that doesn't mean there is a lack of connection.

Gianofer Fields studies material culture at UW-Madison and is the curator of "It's a Material World" - a project funded by the Chipstone Foundation, a decorative arts foundation whose mission is preserving and interpreting their collection, as well as stimulating research and education in the decorative arts.
