“The Dwelling” is a collaborative public art installation and was created by Christina Coleman, Jieun Beth and Sara Madandar - artists coming together from different places across the world (US, Korea and Iran respectively). The Dwelling first started in Austin, TX, where it was installed as a public art project that would expand as a concept to different cities around the world. This new iteration of “The Dwelling” takes shape at Colorado Springs, as an interactive installation that brings together a larger group of artists working collaboratively and engaging with their audience in different ways while working within this traveling concept.
“The Dwelling” consists of a house with reflective plexiglass walls – resulting in different scenes during day or night. During the day, the plexiglass acts as a mirror and reflects its surroundings. At night, a light makes the walls transparent, revealing what’s inside.
