Morphosis, 2-4-6-8 House, 1978 . "Our client, who served as the builder of this project, desired a room for privacy and meditation which could function for a broad range of activities. This studio was to be added onto a 1920's beach bungalow. . Because we wished to communicate with the client and were interested in the formal terms of the design of the house, we created a “Revell-like“ kit. This kit documented the project in a familiar format that could be understood by a layperson and could help to alleviate some of the fear and confusion inherent in undertaking such a formidable task. The kit contained two posters, which catalogued the building materials and described a basic step-by-step construction assembly. A pocket-sized set of working drawings served as the major means of communication with the client." . Fragment from the book "Morphosis Buildings and Projects", Rizzoli, New York 1989 .

Viladomat Dwellings by Nomen Arquitectes @nomenarq ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ In the heart of l'Eixample, a reconversion of an unconventional office building into an apartment building is willing to compromise between the inherited concrete structure and multiple façade systems that allow a comfortable inhabitation. ⁠ ⁠ While the street façade is articulated through foldable shutters, recovering the vertical proportion openings of the Eixample, the inner block façade recovers the green roller blinds. ⁠ ⁠ An everyday filter from Mediterranean verandas, helping the neighbors to manage their solar protection and degree of privacy. ⁠ ⁠ Photos by @guillamat ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #PersianaBarcelona #Barcelona #Eixample #VerdSayrach #vivendes #housing #reforma #galleries #architecture #rearwindow #domesticity #humanspace #refurbishment #woodenblinds #rollerblinds #Green

Arne Svenson, The Neighbors, 2013 . "The Neighbors project began when I inherited a long-focus lens and started photographing the occupants of the glass-walled apartment building across the street from my Manhattan studio. I was transfixed by the divergent narratives, obstructed by reflections and the patina of dust on glass, that were created in the segmented windows. (...) I was stringent about not revealing the identities of the subjects because I was not photographing these people as specific, identifiable personages, but more as representations of human kind, of us. I only reveal the turn of the head, the back against a window, the legs under a table. These tiny scenarios and actions reveal a humanness that is unconsciously truthful and tender.” . In his project "The Neighbors", photographer Arne Svenson constructs a series of quasi-abstract compositions that expose the inner life of a glazed building in TriBeCa behind the grid structure of the window frames. . The portrayals are intimate in that they reveal everyday moments up close and without artifice, but at the same time they keep the observer detached by concealing the inhabitants' faces. In opposition to Hitchcock's Rear Window, where James Stewart plays a photographer who becomes obsessed with his neighbours’ activities and misdemeanours, Svenson's photographs do not intend to judge or reveal secrets of other people's lives, but rather seem to use them as parts of a still life. . Not surprisingly, the people depicted in the photographs were not pleased with the invasion of their privacy, and sued the photographer, but their claims were dismissed in two separate occasions on First Amendment grounds. .

"Healthy warmth! - quick with gas! : advert issued by Bradford Corporation Gas Department, 1933. In the days of municipally owned trading departments, before nationalisation in 1947/8 and subsequent privatisation, most British councils ran their own gas and electricity departments and Bradford was no exception. Although electriicty was slowly starting to become heavily used in domestic environments by the 1930s, gas was still the favourite for heating, cooking and even lighting. Here a 'lass', looking alarmingly like the young Princess Elizabeth (now the Queen) is happily having tea and toast whilst being softly and penetratingly warmed. #bradford #yorkshire #gas #advertising #domesticappliances #heating #lighting #cooking #municipal #energy #1933 #graphicdesign #type #typeface #bradfordcorporation #retroadvertising #vintageadvertising #warmth #snug #clean #tea #toast #quick #gasfire #domesticity #homecomforts #backintheday #1930sfashion #1930s

"You is kind. You is smart. You is important." Kathryn Stockett, The Help We keep ourselves busy with all kinds of things, many of which we find our value or identity in, but having a house that is in order is something to be proud of in of itself. It requires a lot of hard, very boring and repetitive work that you won't get much credit for. It is a goal for many people to not have to do it themselves. Others like to do it for relaxation or because completing it makes them happy or proud. Whether it is something you are proud that you look after yourself or something you feel you can look down on if others do it, there's nothing like a comfortable living space that is in good shape, and whoever is responsible for this is doing an extremely important job! #domesticity #homework #housework #work #pride #value #b &w #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephotography #creativelife #creativelifehappylife #365daychallenge #365photochallenge #igdaily

I needed to renew my research library borrowing privileges, so João and I made a nice afternoon of it, starting at the palatial Schwarzman building, looking up old transit maps, then heading down to the old B.Altman's (now the CUNY Grad Center), which is across the street from the Empire State Building, then down to Madison Square Park and the Flatiron Building. We then made a quick stop at the Strand Bookstore to buy Lee Israel's out-of-print biography of Tallulah Bankhead, followed by a quick look at the beautifully solemn interior of First Presbyterian. We rented bikes to head back uptown along the Hudson and made it home in time to clean house and do laundry before dinnertime. #domesticity #newyorkstyle

I'm writing this morning. Soon I'll take a break to work more on autumn cleaning. Soon I'll chop up golden beets to make kvas for my Wigilia-golden barszcz. Soon I'll switch from coffee to tea, light incense, heat water, and start washing dishes and walls. . Not yet though... .

Rachel Whiteread, House, 1993 . Rachel Whiteread (1963) won the Turner Prize in 1993 for House, a temporary work that consisted on creating a concrete cast out of a Victorian house that was going to be demolished, the last one standing on the edge of a new public part, Wennington Green. Later, as she tore down the original walls that had served as the mold for the work, what remained was the empty space turned into matter, standing still in the middle of a street. . House worked in many levels. . After its completion on October 25th 1993, it created a highly controversial debate between art critics, politicians and the general public about contemporary art: its meaning, its value, its importance. Despite many efforts to the contrary, it was finally demolished on January 11th 1994. . On a more conceptual level, the work was a thought-provoking take on the idea of “home”. By turning space into a massive sculpture, and thus inverting the mass and void, House makes the space for life, the air between the walls of the rooms, visible, existent in itself; while at the same time making it completely uninhabitable. The house is much more “present” than it ever was, but it is not really a house. . More images and info in an old entry in aseriesofrooms.com .

I asked Paul if he wanted to see my quilt so far and he said, “Well, technically it’s not a quilt.” 😊 So here is my quilt TOP. (Electrical outlet for scale.) The back will include some version of “yet I believe this is not the end.” I love the last page of _Babette’s Feast_ and definitely recommend the book, movie, or both. . Also, I thought all my suiting fabrics were wool. Apparently not, and my iron was set too high. Time for some mending. . . #reiterations #quilting #contemporaryquilt #womanartists #artquilt #realwork #wip #inthestudio #amsewing #contemporaryartist #scadfibers #fiberart #vintagelinens #workclothes #southernartist #motherartist #artistmother #mothermaker #domesticity #artmomproject #artistmeetsmother #artistresidencyinmotherhood #makingmotherhoodvisible #textbasedvisualart #artistmotherco #womenwhopaint
