House Pencil Green sits at the intersection of sculpture and post-dramatic theatre, on the corner of time-based media and installation, just a block north of video and performance art. At House Pencil Green, pre-recorded and live-produced video elements interact with built and modified objects, environments, and live performance. Events furthers the evolution of the space that contains them.
With House Pencil Green, demonstrably harebrained and visibly skewed investigations into the nature of media are juxtaposed in the delineated space of performance, installation, and exhibition, all in an attempt to understand our contemporary sublime.
Through the development of interactions among objects, environments, and technologies, House Pencil Green simultaneously courts and resists a relationship with narrative inquiry, creating projects equally influenced by vernacular performing traditions, the history of children’s television, and sculpture in the expanded field.
House Pencil Green is directed by Joseph Herring and Amy Ruddick.
