The Nomad narrates assemblage artist Dominique Moody’s personal sojourn, her family legacy and a cultural odyssey. Its story melds life and art together as a narrative and serves as a catalyst to conversations about cultural, social, ecological and economic challenges of our times. As an architectural form, its roots have an African-Haitian origin. The Nomad is built on a tandem wheeled trailer. Materials consist of wood, corrugated patinated metal, reclaimed wood, found objects, galvanized metal, polycarbonate panels, end grain plywood, natural cork. At 120 sq ft, the Nomad has a capacity for only 6 people at a time, but it has been toured by as many as 200 people at a single event. The Nomad is based in sustainability and how to find housing for all. Once on the road, it will promote human/nature interaction.
