WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In New England, the winter is ﬁve months long. Everybody eats beans, the pipes always freeze, and everything's buried under six feet of snow. Moving from dreary 1970s New England to an 1840s Transcendental utopia and beyond, Old Paper Houses follows a group of wavering idealists searching for meaning and purpose in all the wrong places. Combining paper dioramas, ecstatic small-town parades, live feed projection and poetry by Bernadette Mayer, Old Paper Houses cycles through faith and doubt to ask: how do we continue to ﬁnd things to believe in, even when it's really, really cold?
