Boisbuchet as a Canvas

Boisbuchet as a canvas / Luis Urculo from Luis Urculo on Vimeo.

I also couldn't resist posting this video, also by Urculo, called Covers/Versiones. It made the rounds a couple months back, but as a vision of domesticized architecture it's quite powerful. In it we see eight iconic modern structures built out of everyday objects—books, napkins, cutlery. Simultaneously mythologizing (and taking a swipe at architectural myth) Urculo gives us a homespun version of several architectural classics. Like a teenager at home in her bedroom with a guitar "covering" a tune by her favorite band, these small sculptures say as much about Urculo as the original structures say about their makers.
