Peripheral tales  6 houses awaiting a visit: 6 houses awaiting a visit

Abstract [en]

I have placed 6 houses alongside a country road in Värmland. By building new I have wanted to investigate the production of certain spatial moments; moments I have discerned from the presence of places, as the road passes them through this peripheral area. Their differences aside each house derives from a found sense of hospitality, as well a proud mentality of showing the very best of sides to a visitor. Programmatically the houses portray one tale each - about an encounter and that of being a host and invite a guest inside. That being said the host could very well be the house in itself. I have asked myself: what if a visitor passed by, what would take place? - And what would the building express in waiting for that to happen?
