Houston Housing Explosion

A Daily Dose is featuring an eye-catching sculptural installation called Inversion by two Texas artists, Dan Havel and Dean Ruck.

The work was installed on two Houston houses, owned by the Art League, that were scheduled for demolition in order to make room for a new Art League building. Inversion is an interesting, whimsical exploration of space and perspective, giving a new meaning to the phrase "opening up the space." It looks like something from a cartoon in the way it plays with physics, and its location in a residential neighborhood probably helps reinforce its fantastic quality.

Maybe the vortex in the side of the house is where everyone's money is being sucked with the escalating price of housing (at least in DC!).
