A Sac of Rooms All Day Long, 2009

— Sound

A Sac of Rooms All Day Long is an installation by Alex Schweder with an accompanying sound work by Yann Novak.

A Sac of Rooms All Day Long stuffs the four rooms of an 800 square foot single family home into a building envelope of a 500 square foot bungalow. Through this misfit, an architectural space results with deformations, writhings, and contortions as the rooms inflate and readjust to their volatile adjacencies. Although the timed “score” of fans turning on and off remains the same for every performance, the material and architectural result of the vinyl sacks is different each time that the rooms fall upon one another in different configurations during the deflations.

Part of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art permanent collection.
