Skyward with @konstkonsulent

The Moonhouse keeps leaping to the sky. This time Mikael Genberg, Moonhouse Artist Extra Ordinaire himself, has sent the Moonhouse on a skyward adventure. In a homage to Moonhouse payload project manager KTH Professor, Dr. Gunnar Tibert, the Moonhouse is fitted in a spaghetti structure suspended from balloons and launched into the atmospehere. The mission is a part of the art project @konstkonsulent and described in pictures on Instagram.

Independence Day

This report from the Independence Day Expedition reaches us from Mike Morrison in the USA:

Last week the Crimson Tide house accompanied me and my wife to Gulf Shores, AL to celebrate the 4th of July. For the US this date represents our independence from Great Britain. Normally we have huge fireworks displays along with plenty to eat and drink, however this year Mother Nature did not play along:) So no pictures with fireworks unfortunately.
Image 5907 was taken on a dock looking out over Bon Secour Bay on July 2nd, the crane in the background would not come into focus.
Image 5913 is of the house floating on a lily pad in the lagoon on July 3rd.
Image 5904 was taken on July 4th.
Images 5950, 5963, and 5964 were taken on July 3rd at Fort Morgan, possibly the southern most point of the state of Alabama. This fort has been used in many of our nation’s domestic conflicts (a polite way of saying many cannons were fired from this place 🙂
Image 5986 was taken on July 5th at a place called Lulu’s. She is the sister of singer Jimmy Buffett. No margaritas for the house but plenty of fried okra and pot roast quesadilla and beer, obviously.

Here at HQ we particularly appreciate the picture with the Moonhouse together with the United States Flag. It stimulates thoughts on a level words are incapable of. It is art. Moonhouse belongs everywhere, everywhen, to everyone and to none.

Congratulations Mike to your novel and successful expedition and the beautiful imagery and thank you for highlighting this valuable aspect. Fair winds on your coming adventures.

Hi Emil!
Here are some more moonhouse pictures. This time shot on a hill in Menton in Southern France, at the side of the Winged Nike [Winged Victory of Samothrace] if I am not mistaken. There was no sunrise over the Sea available as background for the house but the first rays of light that found their way over the mountains offered pretty lighting. My favourite is 086.
Cheers!

Winged Nike is also known as Winged Victory of Samothrace and has been described as ”the greatest masterpiece of Hellenistic sculpture”. We agree that picture 086 (above) is very beautiful indeed but is a hard call to make considering the competition (right).
Congratualtions Christian to your successful expedition to, the Riviera, to the sun, to music (House of the Rising Sun) and to the Gods (Nike).

Expedition HQ was hard presses on wheter to call this house ”The Victory” or ”The House of the Rising Sun” but must settles in the latter: Let Moonhouse henceforth be known as The House of the Rising Sun.

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s a … house on my toe!

Sini Merikallio has outdone herself again. What else can you say about this inspiring and mind challenging picture of the house on a toe.

Huset 2.14 just återkom från Lille

Moonhouse #2.14 – The Animal Kingdom in Lille, France

Och när namnet var redan ”Animal Kingdom”, visiterad denna hus naturligtvis också Lille Zoo.
(Eng: As the name was already ”Animal Kingdom”, this house naturally also visited the Lille Zoo)
Moonhouse #2.14 – The Animal Kingdom in Lille Zoo, France

We guess that the house in the background of the second image is the ”Hôtel de Ville de Lille” but we have absolutely no idea what the big rodent (or moose?) in the background is. A newly discovered mammal perhaps. You never know what you will find on an amazing adventure.

Thank you for the beautiful pictures Sini. Congratulation to yet another successful expedition and fair winds for your coming adventures.

Vi ær røde, vi ær hvide*

Fredrik Zeybrandt brought house #2.4 to Louisiana in Denmark on May 13, 2013

Fredrik Zeybrandt brought house #2.4 to Louisiana in Denmark on May 13, 2013

The house has explored yet another great country! This time Fredrik Zeybrandt has brought Moonhouse #2.4 to Louisiana in Denmark. Denmark is very close to the house due to its close relation to the beautiful colours red and white, the colours of Dannebrogen its red and white flag and associated football cheering song, ”Vi ær røde, vi ær hvide”*.

Louisiana is the well known museum of moderna art located north of Copenhagen. Among the current exhibitions are one with Yoko Ono. Note how the house seems to levitate in these surroundings.

*”Vi ær røde, vi ær hvide” translates to ”We are red, we are white”.
