Architect Alex Schweder Moving into ReActor

When: Sat., June 9 and Sun., June 10 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 occupants. 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 activations, onlookers are invited to observe and interact with the residents as they navigate the ever-shifting structure as it reacts to atmospheric conditions.
