Push Button House
12 minutes / Ages 13+ / 2008 / United States of America / Average:
An architectural pioneer attempts to create a containerized home that strikes a delicate balance between art and architecture.
"Push Button House" investigates the creation of Adam Kalkin's follow-up to his 2007 Venice Biennale sensation, a shipping container that blossoms into a sleek modern pre-fabricated home. First-person observation and Kalkin's own words shed light on an artist/architect who defies anything traditional. Part performance piece and part sculpture, the Push Button is an engineering and artistic feat that captured the attention of both the artistic community and public as a bold, yet playful vision on the intersection of art and technology.
This award winning short film has been featured at over a dozen international festivals including AFI Dallas, Newport Beach Film Festival, Seattle International Film Festival, and featured preview footage at the Museum of Modern Art.
