This installation, presented for the 2009 DesCours event in New Orleans, is described in the designers words as below:
openHouse is an illuminated canopy filling the upper portion of a small courtyard. As participants fill the courtyard the space is transformed by a field of kinetic devices. The installation works to create a fluid public condition which is programmed by habitation and social interaction. Participants control the architecture through the casual use of daily objects – glasses, plates and the like. The character and structure of the space becomes inseparable from the objects, and therefore the users, within it.
