Power of Making

Off


 

What do words like “craft” and “skill” mean in 2011? That is one of the questions that the exhibition ‘Power of Making’ seeks to answer. This film delves into the working lives of four makers: shoe designer Marloes ten Bhömer, crochetdermist Shauna Richardson, artist, curator and glass designer Matt Durran and flute-maker Stephen Wessel. It uncovers processes of thought and making that are as fascinating, complex and contemporary as the exhibition itself.

From 2006 to 2009, LA-based photographer James Welling made several trips to Philip Johnson’s Connecticut retreat, to capture the modern marvel in all aspects and seasons. The series of photos are collected in Welling’s forthcoming book The Glass House, which we preview in the exclusive images above. “It reminded me of my [architect] uncle’s house: It was nowhere near as grand, but had glass walls and looked out onto a little lake,” the Connecticut native says of his attraction to the structure, built in 1949 on a 47-acre plot of land just outside New Canaan.

美しいのぉ...

The house that architect Eero Saarinen completed in 1957 for J. Irwin Miller and his family in Columbus, Indiana, easily qualifies as a paragon of residential midcentury Modernism. Amazingly, the glass and steel, 6,838-square-foot pavilion, with interiors by Alexander Girard and landscaping by Daniel Kiley, has remained intact all these years. (Suzanne Stephens)

Leaving the paint peeled off the walls, but finishing it off with special resin to keep it intact, keeping the engravings, the scores and scratches are all elements of this rather casually untouched interior design approach. The tone was set by the existing interior shell of the former garage, the poured concrete walls and ceiling.
