open house by Aaron Anderson by Anne Zahalka

An article about Aaron Anderson and the creation of this piece.

 I am especially interested in this comment "We wanted to make a work that completely ignored the landscape. This house sees the rock as incidental and irrelevant. It is going to be there and no landscape is going to stand in its way. It’s meant to be obnoxious, which conflicts with the “cute” factor." I think that says so much about current housing "ideals" and avaricious desires to have housing which in no way relates to place or landscape and certainly doesn't 'tread lightly' on the Earth.

Here's more about Anne Zahalka
