Perhaps the only distinction between objects and things resides in their scale. Closer to any natural thing, in its ambiguous scale, this small building is more than a hut but less than a house: it is a cottage. As an opaque block, a monolithic object heavily anchored at the edge of a cliff, it is facing a sea-lion reserve on the Pacific Ocean. Continue reading Pezo Von Ellrichshausen

Sitting atop a pleasant and continuous evergreen meadow, overlooking the inner sea of Chiloe Island, this is both a half and a double house.

There is a large space contained by these parallel rooms; a partially paved court that is protected from the rain in two covered corners and from the strong winds on three sides. These sides are conceived as functional widths, as emptied thick walls containing all the domestic facilities.

Con dos cilindros concéntricos y dos extensiones, a la manera de túneles de acceso, esta pieza escultórica busca erosionar su propia figura para representar un paisaje interior. Este es un cuarto opaco, sin juntas y en penumbra, lo suficientemente áspero como para evocar el distante lugar original en el que la instalación fue grabada. De hecho, el radio del cilindro más pequeño está definido por un afinado equipo y por la distancia precisa para un observador inmerso en la imagen proyectada. Continue reading Pezo von Ellrichshausen
