Surrealism in space. The two sculptors Dan Havel and Dean Ruck created a mood of sucking space from a building façade with wood. The whole on one side of the building acts as the center where everything else is attracted to and sucked into.

This effect is created through a tunnel shaped form that gets deep to a bright hollow spot where you can see the light on the other side. This piece of art façade was the upgrading of two decaying houses in Houston.

Now the façade doesn’t have doors or windows. It doesn’t act as an envelope to the inside space of the house as in rational conditions.  Now, it develops to a sculptural wooden structure that blends the inside with the outside creating a different story with a different scenario.

The details are no more there, instead there’s a new other world that blows your mind just by standing in front of it trying to look through the spot of the light.
