Although soundscape is about outside but I made an indoor life experiences of immigrants. In my opinion, if you want to see the real foreigner life style, you should see it from inside. All of us, as an unwritten rules, are trying hide ourselves to be as same as others and this is why you can find lots of ethnic elements in our houses!
The term Assimilation as a main theme of immigration is not easy to get. Finding similar and familiar objects can be helpful in the process. These neutral objects are something that can be fined around the world; Coca, Cheese burger, Pizza, IKEA and so on. Although there are several critics against neutralising modern world, but it seems that they are helpful as only familiar things in immigrants new life.
In this installation, I used IKEA furniture as a neutral objects which can affordable for most of middle classes around the world.
