What A House Throwing Up Would Look Like
How would a house feel like if it knew that its life would come to an
end? It would throw up
, according to artist Chris
Whiteburch of art collective Ink Tank Lab, as shown in their art project
"Last New Year" in Austin, Texas.
The premise for the project was fascinating: the ensemble imagined
a fictional group of people living in the home who would react to the
prophesied end-of-times 2012 date. One of my favorite pieces from the
show is a giant installation called The Purge by artist Chris Whiteburch
who decided to imagine how the house itself would confront the impending
doom. The result is a structure purging its contents, all manner of
debris and structural material shooting violently through a window into
a giant wooden splash.
