Reversable Destiny Arakawa Biosphere House

Mex and I were invited by Madeline Gins to visit her East Hampton home located in Springs New York. Arakawa and Gins were

artists from 1960’s and built this house in East Hampton as proof that living with too much comfort was catastrophic to the human condition. They built buildings that thought that humans should live in a perpetual state of instability. They felt that right angels, an absence of symmetry and a constant shifting of elevations would stimulate the immune system, sharpen the mind and lead to immortality. The bumpy floor made of compacted earth and the intensely colored walls were meant to be hard to live with, thus prolonging life. This was the only project build in the United States and no one lived there on a full time basis. Gins died a year later of cancer.
