Bathmat is a sculptural forfeiture of national identity in the name of hospitality and references the shared national symbol of the golden eagle which is present on both the American and Iraqi national seals. The audio accompanying the sculpture, triggered by a motion sensor, shares a personal experience of attempted hospitality, acceptance of failure, ignorance and grace extended. The structural pillar references a front porch and a sense of pride in having a place to call home, while questioning ideas about what is foreign or domestic.
