Eames House of Cards at Artprize presented by Scott Christopher Homes and Via Design
The building community comes together to create massive house of cards…..
Nearly 10,000 cards in all were decorated and assembled. The end result was a massive display of community art work.
A few fun facts about the effort:
House of Cards was deigned by Charles and Ray Eames in the 1950’s. these picture card decks have become universal favorites, and are represented in the Mo MA collection. Each card depicts a different familiar object from the animal, mineral or vegetable kingdoms. Six slots on each card enable the player to interlock the cards for building their dream house (of cards.)
Scott Christopher Homes and Via Design joined forces to Knock Out Hunger by participating in Canstruction at the West Michigan Home and Garden Show held at DeVos Place.
Local teams compete to design and build giant structures made entirely from cans of food. Our entry — a larger than life boxing glove — was made of 3462 cans of food
After the show, the cans of food were then donated to the Salvation Army ‘s Booth Family Services where they were delivered to people in need.
