The work makes use of soundless cracking agent, an expansive mortar, that was developed for splitting rock and concrete in urban densely built areas without any noise or vibration. The cracking is a result of pressure created by the expanding agent. In the installation the moment when the stones crack is unpredictable. Whereas the new, silent and unobtrusive method improves efficiency in urban construction, in the exhibited piece it works in the opposite direction. The time in the installation makes no concession to the gallery’s opening hours neither to the stuff or viewer’s schedules. The stones are cracking in their own time.

The Secret Life of Buildings, CAAD, University of Texas at Austin, 10/2016

 

A CALL FOR OBJECTS

This is a call for works of art or design that (i) might fairly be called ‘objects’ by the nascent philosophies of Speculative Realism and Object Oriented Ontology, and that (ii) will throw light on architecture as a peculiar set of objects, phenomena, ideas, relations, connections, skills, materials, obligations, and operations. A selection of twenty of these Objects—all physical and all, whether singular or configurations of smaller objects, falling within the four Parameters set out below—will be exhibited for two weeks around a three-day symposium to be staged by the Center for American Architecture and Design (CAAD) at The University of Texas at Austin in October 2016 called “The Secret Life of Buildings.” More about the Symposium here.

 

Stage One Jurors:  Michael Benedikt, Kory Bieg, Clay Odom.

Stage Two Jurors:  Graham Harman, Ian Bogost, Leslie Van Duzer, Levi Bryant, Winka Dubbeldam, Jorge Otero-Pailos, Albena Yaneva, Michael Benedikt, Kory Bieg
