Plan Drawings of Every House I Ever Lived In

Michael Grothusen, memory sculpture, space and memory, plan drawings of houses from memory

Working from memory, I drew a plan drawing of every house I lived in between 1968 and 1994. The drawings contained notes on the location and types of furnishings in the rooms including the colors of the carpets and the walls. Installed in the Chateau de la Napoule, la Napoule, France.

14 years later I built a half-scale model of the house I lived in from 1972 to 1977. This work was installed at the Crane Arts Center in Philadelphia.
