A collection of anthropological specimens that encapsulate the freedom and tethers of contemporary single-occupant living units – by Ziv Schneider and┬áCaitlin Robinson, 2017

“Since the 1950s, the number of people who live by themselves is growing exponentially. In the 10,000 year history of human civilization, this is the first documented period where large proportions of the population occupy their own, individual, dwelling. Today more than half of the residents of Manhattan live alone. The Watertight collection is an incomplete archive of infrastructure that supports single-occupant living in New York City.” – Watertight
