October 25, 2006: House on museum



Neatorama notices this item I'd previously picked up on Ananova.

Quote:
A house has been 'dropped upside down' on the roof of the Viennese Museum of Modern Art.

The art project, entitled House-Attack by top local sculptor Erwin Wurm, is supposed to look as if the house has fallen out of the sky and landed on the famous museum in the centre of the Austrian capital.

It actually took two cranes to put the huge sculpture into place, which is complete with a red roof, window boxes and a TV antenna.
So far, so good. Now the part he doesn't get away with:
Quote:
The artist said his work was a statement against over-development.

Wurm said: "There are hundreds of thousands of houses and they are spreading like a plague, like a cancer across our land."
"How horrible it is that the people have their own housing."

Are there ruby slippers underneath?

Weren't there killer houses, on Monty Python, that hopped around eating people, or something?



Trilby  Wednesday Oct 25 03:45 PM

How do people come up with these ideas? And, more importantly, how do they get other people to pay them for it?



Sundae  Wednesday Oct 25 04:02 PM

If you must know, someone dropped a house on my sister.
Show some respect, people.

I think it makes the museum look as though it has grown a head, ala Transformers, and is now preparing to squash the city flat in its righteous indignation.

If I click on it will it bring up my Home Page... only upside down?

It's actually an improvement to that museum building.

A Record Drop In Home Prices
The price of existing homes last month fell 2.2 percent, the largest monthly decline in the almost four decades the number has been tracked, according to an industry report released yesterday.

It's not the housing per say, it the bad housing. Stuff like McMansions for DINKS and acres of lawns in Las Vegas.

What? Those lawns in Vegas and Tucson are wonderful. It gives the residents a taste of nostalgia for the allergies and asthma(sp) they left back east.
