Flux Factory Install

Flux Factory is a DIY art space in Long Island City where fairly legit academic types are creating that environment outside the academy.  They operate as an international hub for people interested in art, social practice, and often radical and/or gender politics.  This TetraHouse installation was for a Flux residency concerning Utopia.  TetraHouse kind of invokes the language of Utopic architecture which is why I suppose it was relevant for this exhibition.  The Flux residence offered to transport and assemble the TetraHouse which was amazing!  My intention has always been for other people to eventually play with these building blocks as if they were adult-Legos.  This was the first time someone else assembled TetraHouse without me!
