"House falls apart" is 2 channel video installation in which imagery is projected on 2 sides of a house-shaped object. The inexplicable title comes from a phrase written alongside drawings of the creator Sakano's own house he did as a child. The phrase has been used as an antithesis towards the symbolic sources of identity "home" and "family" that are depicted as having been weakened in this piece. Playing on the front window of the piece is a slow-motion image of Japanese child drawing a picture while other children run around behind him. On the opposite window an image of a man standing on the opposite side of the glass plays. Eventually the man breaks the glass and gazes out at the viewer.
