André Schmucki (b. 1967, Switzerland)
Artists states: painting’s harbor a distinct hauntological methodology in which the representational image is mystified through layers of paint. Leaving the image distant and intriguing.
It is commonly believed that the primary function of dreams is to psychologically balance and compensate for matters left unsettled during our waking hours.
Guerrilla graffiti artist Banksy is believed to be behind a new mural which recently appeared on a wall in Cheltenham, England near the headquarters of the Government’s intelligence agency, GCHQ. The artwork depicts three men dressed as 1950s spies in trademark trenchcoats and sunglasses spying on various phone conversations. The new mural comes in the wake of the storm over surveillance and the NSA revealed by whistleblower Edward Snowden.

The river banks to which the site of the house overlooks is among the prominent spots of Ibargi Prefecture, renowned for their cherry blossoms. In designing the house, I attached great importance to its relationship with the cherry blossoms.
The facade which consists of three white outer walls, is suggestive of triple ripples on the surface of the river. It is a house that enables its residents to live closely with the cherry trees which manifest all kinds of expressions with the changing of the seasons in Japan.
Based on the shape of the site, one that stretches in a narrow strip toward the cherry trees, I I conceived the shape of the house , a U-shaped one, so that every one of its rooms would fully benefit from the light.
