Howardena Pindell, Rambo Real Estate: Homelessness, 1987

Images of Howardena Pindell, Rambo Real Estate: Homelessness

A collage of real estate listings from old newspapers forms the crude shape of a simple house. The news clippings, which are black ink on manilla paper, are combined in a way that the lines of text form complex stochastic patterns. In the center of the collage is the word: HOMELESSNESS in white letters.
