What do you do when someone you've never heard of before calls you and asks you to build a full-sized American single family home – on pontoons, so that it can float in Venice/Italy? Dawid and his crew decided to go for the adventure, and they did a perfect job; only some circumstances they weren't able to control, and that's when disaster struck…
The project was the idea of Mike Bouchet, a Frankfurt/Germany based American artist who was invited to contribute a piece to the 53rd Venice Biennial. His original intention was to question the dream of the American single family home and to raise awareness on urban sprawl.
It's a both funny and sad story that delivers exemplary insight into the production processes of contemporary art. Additionally, it is the documentation of a great adventure that thrilled and moved all involved throughout its duration.
