This is the “Sliding House” by rDMM Architectur. Completed in 2009 in Suffolk, UK.
Wonderful piece of japanese architecture by Suppose Design Office in Japan.
Smart and simple concept. Still strange. I like it.

“The OCD Series is the culmination of my research into Obsessive Compulsive behaviour. For some people OCD is an extremely serious phycological disorder that greatly impedes the lives of those who suffer it. However, everyone to some extent displays signs of personal rituals, quirks and foibles.
In this collection i have created a series of works that reflect obsessive or ritualistic behaviour in relation to everyday objects.” (Mark Owens)

The above picture shows a sketch for the intervention “Invented Shadows” by luzinterruptus.
It was presented at the “fete des lumiers lyon 2009” and at “nuit blanche paris 2010”. Unfortunately it was never realised…
By using a one way mirror the photojournalist Moa Karlberg photographs passer-bys observing themself. I love this portraits because of their voyeuristic element and because they are capable of capturing that insecurity this strangers might felt while watching themself in public.
The project itself is actually about the debate how close you can get to a person without acting illegal. Also take a look at her other pretty moving projects.

There you will also find this interesting “conversation”:
Irina Werning calls herself a “nosy photografer” because of her passion for old photos. In this series she invited people to travell back to the future – and this is what they found.
“I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… A few months ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future.” Irina Werning
