In this second installment of our Distraction Series, we are sharing Nobu Yamaoka’s documentary film, WE (2011), featuring Madeline Gins. This film follows Madeline from her studio at 124 West Houston Street to the Bioscleave House in East Hampton, NY, offering another opportunity to spend time with Arakawa+Gins’s reversible destiny architecture. Throughout the film, Madeline provides an intimate look into her extensive, decades-long study of the body, undertaken with Arakawa, as we watch a family explore, navigate, and react to the challenging terrain of Bioscleave House. Thanks to the director's generosity, this 60 minute film will be available through the end of June, 2020. In case you haven't had a chance to watch it yet, Children Who Won't Die (2010) is also available through June via our website.
We hope you enjoy WE (2011) and will be in touch again with another distraction in two weeks’ time!
Yours in the reversible destiny mode,
Reversible Destiny Foundation and Arakawa+Gins Tokyo office
