Tuck & Roll builds a queer community situated in the Midwest of America and examines what a utopia could look like in domestic and private landscapes through the lens of magical realism. Using the artist's close friends and trans siblings as stand-ins for biological family, Houston's images 'manifest a desire to have unconditional relationships' without losing the landscape they grew up in. The images are made up of materials fundamental to queer nightlife and include friends, family, partners, interiors, and landscapes addressing the multi-layered erasure queer communities have experienced.
