METAPHORICALLY SPEAKING

I'm a sucker for fun conceptual art. That's why when I spotted this series of sculptures I felt the urge to share them with you and hoped you would love them as much as I do. Created by American artist Michael Jantzen, ‘The House As A Metaphor’ are conceptual sculptures that incorporate a simple symbolic shape of a house in each of the pieces. Some of their names are directly related to its final form (like ‘Heads of the House’ above), but in others the relationship is less obvious. However, in every case the artist's intention was to play with the image of the house and have some fun with it—which I think he definitely did. Which one is your favorite? Mine? Hmmm... I would have to say ‘Dream House’ and ‘House Flipper’.

‘Dream House’

‘Rocking House’

‘House with Orbiting Doorway’

‘House With One Rotating Piece’

‘House of the Lord’

‘House with Four Exiting Piglets’

‘House Flipper’

Whoa, these are some beautiful representation of creative thoughts. I like the rocking & dream house! But the only thing is, may be I will have to swing around to get my things. :-)
