Two men are spending 10 days living in a home with a difference: it’s a 25-foot wooden wheel.
Ward Shelley and Alex Schweder will live in the wheel as part of the In Orbit art project at The Boiler gallery in Manhattan.
This new work, In Orbit, continues in this vein with the wheel-shaped house. All its furniture and accommodations are fixed along its circumference. To bring the users the things they require during the day, they must walk in tandem to rotate the giant wheel. The artists will live in the structure 24/7 from February 28 through March 9, 2014. From that date until April 5, 2014, the end of the exhibition, the structure will remain on view in the exhibition space as an installation
