Giant Hamster Wheel Doubles As A Two Bedroom Apartment [Video]
Architectural performance explores how humans interact with their environment.
Artist Ward Shelley and Alex Schweder’s “Social Relationship Architecture Project” constructs a fascinating view on how we come into contact with our surroundings, and their newest installation further explores that idea in a giant hamster wheel dwelling space.
In Orbit is essentially a two bedroom apartment, expect one is on the inside and one on the outside. The two men have decided to call this wheel-like structure, which features all the proper home furnishings and components they would need, home for 10 days. The desk, bed, chair and kitchen are mirrored inside and out; so when one needs to change his position, the other one needs to follow suit, or else the entire wheel will be out of balance.
