Wordless Wednesday, The Hole House

Wordless Wednesday, The Hole House

Sadly this ‘Hole House’ was only in existence for a few months back in 2005.  Upon first looking at it one could be concerned that some kind of alien invasion or ominous omen was the cause of this strange looking phenomenon.

Nope.

The real answer is that in the Spring of 2005 two houses in Texas were earmarked for demolition were turned in to a limited time art project that came to be known as the ‘Hole House’.

It was officially known as the ‘Inversion’ project, the work of two Houston sculptors, Dan Havel and Dean Ruck.  It would make was afterwards for a new Art League Houston building.

They created a large funnel like vortex beginning from the West wall, the exterior skin of the house was then peeled off and used to create the narrowing as it progresses Eastwards through a small central hallway which connected the two buildings together.

It now only lives on in pictures, so I was glad to find it and be able to share it with you today.

Happy Wordless Wednesday, Justine xx

    Wow, that would make a great movie shot with a few unsuspecting people going inside. I wonder what would happen next?
