The American Dream

The family home is an integral component of the American dream, something that people are consistently working to achieve. Maintaining the beauty of this physical, tangible identity of who people are in an outward expression of class has become standardized in society. Day workers play such an unnoticed, but vital part in the aesthetic composition of these homes; furthermore, adding the color to these otherwise expansive empty properties and landscapes that are supposed to exude togetherness and equal opportunity. Their constant role and presence in maintaining the “picture perfect” space for someone else is a truly defining aspect in the evolution of the American dream, and the hypocrisy that is present in its current state. This series is meant to display the importance of these individuals who often fade into the background due to the social constructs of class, and the metaphorical white picket fences that society creates to separate and divide the working class from the elite.
