artistic appreciation: carrie schneider!

these burning house images by artist carrie schneider are not only haunting and engaging, but eerily balanced. to me, the placement of the solitary fury and destruction of a home on fire within a completely stark landscape seems to keep the danger in check.

"...over the course of 2 years, Schneider built 15 small houses, burning them on an island in a Wisconsin lake in different seasons and at different times of day." source
