This artwork is a full scale, two-story contemporary American Suburban house that stands on the seawater of Venice, Italy as a special project of the 2009 Venice Biennale. Sitting exactly flush with the sea surface, this empty house floated on water until it sunk. The house itself is an exact construction of a new American Suburban house. Constructed from a wood frame with vinyl sided exterior, asphalt shingled roof, traditional windows, white interior walls, nighttime lights and a garage door.
