The Eames House

Case Study House No. 8 was designed and built by Charles and Ray Eames as part of the Case Study House Program in the 1940’s. The aim of these 36 Case Study prototype homes was to come up with plans for post-war homes that were easy and cheap to build. Located in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles, the Eames house is a simple structure using the limited materials available at the time. A home designed for work and family life; it has plenty of light, a modern feel, modular furnishings that can be moved around (even the plants are on a platform with wheels) so the whole room can be reconfigured at any time. Objects collected by the Eames over the years are displayed and incorporated throughout. Just below center in this photograph of the Eames living room is a pile of three pillows which inspired my #2293 floor pillows.

project #2293

Saturday March 11th was the launch of our exhibition, project #2293 – a collaborative project between myself, Martha Sakellariou and Christina Vervitsioti. The exhibition was the result of many conversations Martha, Christina and I had about how to produce and share some work again, following several years of domestic preoccupation! This site-specific exhibition held in a suburban home, explores themes around suburban life, architecture, domesticity and identity, as seen from three different angles.

Thank you for all the support from family and friends. It feels great to have had time to focus, get some work out there again and in particular, collaborate with two like-minded brilliant people! Here’s to the first in many collaborations to come and lots more work!

Now back to giving a little more attention to the kids, catching up with the laundry and cleaning up the house … ;-)
