The Newcomers @ Performa 17
From Performa's website: American architects and artists Alex Schweder and Ward Shelley present The Newcomers, a durational architectural performance that spans both time and distance with responsive and ambulatory forms of habitation. Joined by collaborators Lena Kouvela (*Bois Futuri) and Sarah Burns, the group builds and lives in an evolving nomadic structure that changes each day from temporary home to makeshift bridge in order to reach the next day’s supplies along their route. The same materials are reconstituted into a shelter where they spend the next night before moving again, challenging the discipline of architecture to think beyond permanence.
