The Time Equities, Inc. Art-in-Buildings program is pleased to announce the opening
of Mary Mattingly’s Flock House “Chromasphere” with a site-specific painting
installation by Greg Lindquist at the Maiden Lane Exhibition Space. The Flock House
Project is a group of adaptable ecosystems that will migrate through New York City’s
five boroughs and beyond as part of an investigation of sustainability,
collaboration, and the city of the future. The hand-constructed Flock House
prototype exhibited at the Maiden Lane Exhibition Space is the axis around which
four fabricated nomadic Flock Houses will rotate over the course of the summer. Each
Flock House will become a temporary studio for resident artists tasked with engaging
the community harboring the Flock House.

Expanding on data collected from Mattingly’s Waterpod Project (a self-sustaining
barge that toured the New York City waterways in 2009), the Flock House project
imagines a world where the built environment is adaptable, collapsible, portable,
and modular. Created collaboratively with reclaimed, rethought, and redesigned
materials, the Flock House promotes wider adoption of natural systems including
rainwater capture, inner-city agriculture, and solar and human-powered energy
technologies. The Flock House project endeavors to catalyze and enhance community
interdependence, resourcefulness, learning, curiosity, and creative exploration.

Greg Lindquist, resident artist at the Maiden Lane Exhibition Space, will produce a
site-specific installation that incorporates the Flock House’s geodesic structure in
a networked, multi-canvas painting. Lindquist will also tend and respond to the
Flock House’s indoor garden. The fruits of this labor are slated to grace the table
of a culinary investigation this fall. Exploring the role of nature in the urban
environment, Lindquist will host a series of events centered on the Flock House.
Specific information on these events will be announced as they are developed,
including topics such as urban foraging, rooftop gardening, and plein air painting.

To further the spirit of collaboration inherent to the Flock House, Lindquist has
invited artists Ali Banisadr, Jason Bereswill and Bryan Drury to lend their
perspectives to the discussion. To keep up to date on the Flock House please visit or follow @FlockHouse and @ArtinBuildings on Twitter.
