This collaborative installation grew out of a site specific exploration of both the entrance to the house and the front porch. Window, on the south edge of the porch, replicates the floral concrete relief (allegedly designed by Richard Bock) that surrounds 6018North's doorway.
The synthetic material of the "new" flower fast forwards the ornamentation to the present, overlaying the stable modernist structure with an organic form, highly receptive to wind and light.
The transparent orange and blue flower draws a line to the house next door: the light reflects into the porch during the day and at night casts a shadow on the neighbor’s brick wall.
This project, in contrast to the iconic Chicago architectural ornamentation, proposes a fragile intervention onto the secure structure of the building to draw attention to the existence of itinerant lives and qualities inherent to it.
