NEW WORK IN 2016
During an ominous year, we hope to have offered the world some outposts of wonder and imagination.
Immersive Concert at Ant Fest
In June 2016, Houseworld staged an immersive concert called The Sensitive Ear. Friends became captives, mashed potatoes were sculpted, and cassettes bloomed. Thanks to Ars Nova for juggling our hoard of bathtubs and bed frames.
Elements Festival / Wedding Ritual
On August 13, 2016, entrances into Houseworld were discovered in an empty grain silo in Red Hook. Wandering attendees at Elements Festival slipped into dream rooms as The Director filmed, The Woman In The Bed presaged, and Arnaud the Cook brewed Existential Lemonade.
Meanwhile, on the same day, Houseworld enacted a sensory ritual within a wedding in Fleischmann’s, New York.
On October 4, 2016, In collaboration with The Future of Storytelling, Houseworld presented an immersive experience called Story Bank at a New York Times dinner gala. Guests deposited and withdraw stories in the corridors and vaults of Williamsburg Savings Bank.
We’ve learned so much since diving into this dream two years ago. We’re going to weave all of that knowledge and craft into our big ideas for 2017, and hope to soon invite you into our deepest ocean yet.
Until then, dream brave dreams.
