Glass House May, 2008
399512–001

Installation is sized, priced and produced on a project-specific basis.

In his architectural views of Philip Johnson's Glass House, photographer James Welling transforms this iconic subject matter into mutable and transcendent form. Over the course of three years (2006-9), the Glass House served as the laboratory for Welling's photographic experiments in color, transparency, and reflectivity. Approaching the Glass House as a "lens in the Connecticut landscape," Welling manipulates light and the information it carries with it by placing a variety of colored filters over his camera to create unexpectedly saturated images. At once abstract and representational, Glass House May, 2008 alters our perception of a landmark architectural work.
