Integrating a Burning House
On September 10, 2008, a 96-year-old house on SW Cable Avenue in Portland, Oregon, caught fire and burned down. The house was inhabited by Stuart Baxter, its owner of twenty years, and a couple, Anna Gray and Ryan Paulsen, who rented the first floor apartment. It was also the home of a tabby cat named Brillo Box and a black dog named Maggie. Everyone is safe. A lot is different.
This 48-page book is centered around the loss of that home, the fire that destroyed it, and the artifacts that remain. Designed as a catalogue for an exhibition that never existed, the book features two essays by the artists, and a full-color photo collection documenting the burnt remains of their home and studio.
