The Hole House projects utilized the act of demolition to explore the qualities of light. Hole House #1 involved drilling holes into the façade of an old farmhouse slated for demolition. For Hole House #2, we tried to think of variations on the first project, such as “Sawzall-House” and “Chain-saw House”, but those turned out to be too dangerous. Since time was of the essence, we decided to do a second Hole House. As an added feature, we stuffed some of the holes with colored acrylic rods. We then had a big party, and demolished the building the next day.
