Making Worlds

53rd International Art Exhibition: La Biennale di Venezia

Venice, Italy

June 7 – November 22, 2009

At the 2009 Venice Biennale, Mike Bouchet showed “Watershed,” a 250 square meter single-family house, which he floated in a Venice canal in an attempt to promote the suburbanization of water. For Bouchet, a suburban home is a commercialized architectural fantasy: dream houses sold in kits for the mass consumer.
