Living Capsule, 2013
Living Capsule is a fully functioning shelter with heating, ventilation, insulation, electricity, running water, stove, measuring only 48" x 96" x 34". I lived in this shelter for an entire week, outside, during Winter and recorded the entire experience with video surveilance.
The 80 cubic foot architectural volume is made up of only fully functioning utilities and appliances that assist the physical needs of a human body which it snugly contains.
