A housing crisis and rising number of homeless has made tiny houses a thing. Here is the tiniest of homes, perhaps only a bedroom, portable and to be towed by a bicycle. The oar below it seems mysterious, if not sort of comical. Yet the tiny home itself reflects a solution to a serious problem: what is a homeless person to do with their belongings? We see homeless people with backpacks, bundles, plastic bags, and suitcases and shopping carts. Belongings that they set aside, unattended even for a minute, risk being stolen. We might fail to understand how their belongings are a burden and the risk of theft - even while asleep - is part of the vulnerability that goes with being homeless.
