ReActor: Weekend Performance

Jun 8 – 10
5 – 5 AM

Architect Alex Schweder returns to the Architecture Fields at Art Omi for a weekend performance in the spinning, tilting futuristic home ReActor on June 9, 2018.

ReActor is a 44-foot by 8-foot habitable sculpture that rotates 360-degrees atop a 15-foot concrete column in response to its inhabitants' movements, exterior forces, and interior conditions, making visible the intimate relationship between architecture and its inhabitants. The work is a collaboration between Architect Alex Schweder and Artist Ward Shelley, and was erected in Architecture Field 01 at Art Omi in June 2016. Since its completion, the pair have inhabited ReActor over a series of three durational performances; during these occupations, onlookers are invited to observe and interact with the residents as they navigate the ever-shifting structure as it reacts to atmospheric conditions. Schweder has described their approach as “performance architecture,” stating that “Our relationship with our audiences is a bit different from many performance art works in that we have conversations about the work with them.”
