Fiberglass Subconscious

Updated: Nov 12, 2019

Surrealists rejected modern architecture’s “overrationalized technological realism” and “right-angle past” in favor of the “soft tactile depths” and “umbilical cords” of “circular, spherical, and irregular houses.” (Quotes by surrealists Tristan Tzara and Matta, and theorist Anthony Vidler, from Stephen Phillips’s contribution to Surrealism and Architecture.)

For a short while, the womb-like subconscious of our house is exposed.

The soft, visceral id of the fiberglass is soon to be suppressed by the rigidity of the sheetrock ego. Perhaps when we go into the attic, our house will still dream.
