"Everyone lives as a puzzle creature to herself/himself. What can be done to make the Architectural Body vividly present? Architectural Body = Body Proper + Architectural Surround"
- Arakawa + Madeline Gins
A person cannot automatically read the Reversible Destiny Healing Fun House for it has been built to be a structure that contradicts itself at every turn. It suggests itself to be a single structure at the same time that it presents itself as conjoined twin structures. A structure has been split in two across its middle (at the 5 foot level at one end and at the 6 foot level at the other) and the halves this split produced have been shifted (3.25 feet) to exist distinctly apart from each other. Shifted halves have been pieced back together again to form a single structure that gives every interior—first building—an upside-down version of the same completely defined interior—second building—rests. With her process of world-formation thus de-railed, a person begins processing the environment more tentatively, cultivating, even cradling, TENTATIVENESS, the generative source of all thinking and feeling.
Play off of the Reversible Destiny Healing Fun House like crazy until you have constructed a precise tentativeness for yourself.Project Specifics:
