Kevin Cyr talks about the underlying optimism of his show Home in the Weeds, showing until June 4th at 941 Geary. Cyr’s show is a reminder in how resilient people can be, and his installations are an inspiring look at just how much we could easily do without.

Home in the Weeds is a personal reaction to the fragility of our current society. After the worst economic downturn since the Depression, a feeling of imminent doom remains. With jobs scarce, and government safety nets shrinking, one misfortune — a layoff, an injury, or missed payment — can transform a person’s life beyond recognition. Home in the Weeds examines the idea of shelter as a safe haven for a future worst-case scenario as well as more optimistic notions of home and self-preservation.
