Home examines the intense and fiercely close relationship Collins shares with her mother. Within Alicia's eccentric upbringing, “home” was never clearly defined. Throughout Collins' life, her mother has always been a constant—her one safe place, where she found acceptance and a sense of belonging. Alicia's mother is her "home”. This book investigates the concepts of home, motherhood and family and how the ideals of these institutions pertain to Collins' own experiences and memories. Anxiety and tenderness fuse, revealing a complex relationship where boundaries and normalcy are regularly challenged.
Visually, this book functions as evidence that begins to tell a story of a mother and daughter, where private moments become artifacts for public viewing and where the concept of home can begin to be understood.
