- BUS HOME
- Steel, perforated steel, acrylic, concrete,
paint, electric light
- 26' X 100' X 50'
- A bus transfer station at the Pacific
View mall in Ventura, California. Dennis Oppenheim contributed
the transfer station footprint and the 36' high bus shelter.
Other public facilities, including seating, drinking fountains,
bike racks and telephones were developed with a team including
an architect, a landscape architect, civil and structural engineers
and transit operators. The bus center's public art component
was funded by the City of Ventura's Cultural Affairs Division.
- Artists' statement:
- "Bus Home is a shelter. The work
depicts the metamorphosis of a bus becoming a house. This frozen
animation of one image into another takes the form of a looping
corkscrew entering the ground and coming up again. It slowly
transforms from a bus to a house... For the tired and often alienated
traveler the experience of waiting wished to be intervened by
the realization that the transaction will be complete.
The passengers will arrive at their destination. They
will arrive home."
