Wreck City: a mini-doc

Okay, this is pretty cool. I’m not even going to say anything more about it. I’ll let the description and the video speak for itself. But, let me reiterate that this is pretty cool.

“WRECK CITY: An Epilogue for 809” was a community-based art experiment transforming 9 houses, 3 garages, and a greenhouse scheduled for demolition into temporary art, installation, and performance spaces (April 19-27, 2013). The biggest project of its type in the history of Calgary (perhaps even all of Canada), Eight Artist-Curators invited 100+ artists, musicians, and performers to participate. Artist participants were free to radically alter the architecture of entire houses, re-shaping the homes using materials from the houses themselves, without need for repair at the end of the project.
