To Sit is to Time Travel, 2022
A fourteen-minute companion tour commissioned by the MAK Center for Art & Architecture for the Schindler House’s one-hundredth birthday.
When invited to create an interpretive audio tour for this historic house’s centennial celebration, I decided to respond to a curious absence for the present day visitor: seating. Inspired by two genres of descriptive writing, ekphrastic poetry and alt text, my nine-stop tour is composed of poetic descriptions of various seating and their embodied potential as found in historic photographs of the house prior to institutional stewardship in 1980.
The Companion Tour program was commissioned by the MAK on the occasion of the exhibition Schindler House: 100 Years in the Making. Featuring projects by Anthony Carfello, Virginia/Mats Swensen, Rosten Woo, and myself.
