Institute for contemporary art, Philadelphia

The Holiday Home is an experiential installation exploring areas in which the holiday home departs from modern design conventions. The orthogonal surfaces of the archetypal house are extruded and skewed creating the sculptural armature within which the dichotomies of home and holiday home are played out. The new architectural shape emulates escapism, the expectation of a holiday as removed from everyday routine. Visitor movement through the installation activates unexpected view corridors and the multi directional shadows create unpredictable perspectives. The perception of time is intrinsically interwoven into the project as light conditions subtly modulate; the sense of season and time of day become more abstract, as you may find on holiday where time is unbound by the frameworks of contemporary patterns of living and dwelling.
