mm16: embroidered house // institute of contemporary art, los angeles
june 30th 2019
An event presenting our recent investigation into the form of embroidery, particularly embroidered phrases. Mixing the automatic readability and accessibility of the internet age with this traditional form, House is inviting active participation in the re-appropriation of narrative.
For one afternoon only, we presented mm16 at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. We made the labor of production visible through the in-person use of an embroidery machine.
Participants may purchase a t-shirt embroidered on-site with a phrase of their choosing, or, conversely, bring other garments to be embroidered.”

mm12 : grey zone - prenumbra featuring house of 950
trailer released march 5th 2018
A dark theater is consumed by a fantastical force. One by one, audience members undergo a metaphysical transformation as they are drawn to the stage and into the performance. Together on the stage they dance under the spell of the theater until they leave the stage for another realm.

mm3 : Pt. 2: is it? Presentation spring / summer 2013
Is it? represents the House’s mindset; is it beautiful, is it efficient, is it a jacket, is it us.
The event played on a traditional housewarming party with an installation where vignettes were set up in each room of an empty apartment. Walking into the apartment guests were greeted by the smell of homemade cookies and the faint soundtrack of I Love Lucy. Models in various rooms indulged in domestic activities particular to the HOUSE.

When you enter the House it feels austere, everything is placed perfectly. You’re afraid you might break something. But then you’re invited in. You kick off your shoes and realize how comfortable it is.
