HOUSE was a 10-day project on the island of Mando, off the west coast of Denmark, in 2010.
I drew with aluminum poles to construct a life-size house in three-dimensions. What did this house offer? Neither shelter nor privacy, warmth or security, safe storage, permanence, or stability. It was a blending of inside and outside, and a mixing of sea and house, using only the most minimal lines to define its space within the greater expanse of the landscape.
When seen as an image, the sculpture is flattened through the process of photography, and the photos present the structure as a series of two-dimensional drawings which generate an ambiguous sense of space and scale. The images document a continually changing landscape as the sea enters through doors and walls, with no roof to keep out the weather.
