Playable Buildings: The Home is Heavy


A house becomes alive with the memories created from living/interacting in it. It is more than a structure of shelter, it is the environment that represents family, socializing, privacy, and personal style. I want to create a medium sized structure that gives a viewer the opportunity to see into a home. Is it their own? Their neighbor’s? Is it even a home at all? The house will look conventional but have slight surreal variations of scale, and dimension. It will appear as 3 stories with a pool and lawn. Using both real clips and surreal pattern projections I plan to tell a story, not a narrative, of the energy that goes on within a home. Some themes I am are considering are the juxtaposition of love and sorrow, and memories that share both.
