Home Economics

NEW YORK—This is the working title for Christian Holstad’s and Aleksandra Mir’s collaborative unit in operation since 1998. We are basically trying to figure out the best way to live together - without actually living together. It works brilliantly as the code of honor between us has always been: “Do whatever you want, it won’t be in my way”

Our first collaborative piece, the college letterman jackets, with the words The Grass Gets Greener with Care, refers to the culture of higher education. In November 2002, we wore our jackets posing as sophomores on the steps of Columbia University

But more than making things, Home Economics is a lifelong conversation
