Event Description

Discover the East Hampton house that was designed  to help its inhabitants transcend mortality.


When artists Arakawa and Madeline Gins set out to construct their “Lifespan Extending Villa,” Bioscleave House, artist Robert Bowen was inspired by their one-of-a-kind construction, to create his experimental documentary, The Long Island House. “Imagine a house that is an abstracted three-dimensional diagram of what a house might be,” Bowen writes. “Bioscleave is a perceptual research station built to study the relationship of the body to built architectural spaces.”


Bowen will discuss Bioscleave and timelessness, while photographer and artist Bryan Whitney will show his work focusing on sacred architecture. Cultural critic Don Byrd will moderate and probe the artists' use of abstract and digital representation of architectural space.
