HOUSE OF OXYMORONS in ICARCH Gallery, Chicago by Vlado Valkof

March 2nd, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

The house and the shared inhabitance are about association between two or more different individuals. The shared inhabitance draws in dialectical oppositions: It draws in different and even contradictory behaviors, habits, necessities, activities. The shared inhabitance leads to complex interrelations: coincidental or intentional.

Interior View

Wall not only as a divider but also as a connector: Walls literally connect/attach program “A” with a different program “B”, “C”… Cross in program and activity spaces are connected through the medium of cross surfaces. The cross programs get in motion – one program transmutes into its oppositions through the walls of cross surfaces. Motion in animation means transition from one position/condition to another. In architecture it may mean transition from one program to another.
