Stability.

Collaboration by Ward Shelley and Alex Schweder
Lawrimore Project, Seattle,
March, 2009.

An architectural performance piece that will be occupied by the artists 24 hours a day during the first week of the show. In counterpoint to its name, Stability. is a piece in which balance is a matter of negotiation.

Like a see-saw, this 25 foot structure is a house balanced on a central pivot with the two artists living at either end. When occupied the two bodies will need to move in the space in relation to one another to keep the structure straight. Visually separated by a kitchen and bathroom in the center, the occupying bodies will sense each other through displacement of weight. Activities will naturally change (willingly or not) as the house shifts.
