Want to see a house swiveled around? Beginning at  11 a.m. on 11/11 (weather permitting), "prototype 180," the 180 degree structural rotation of an existing single family home on ¾ of an acre of land will take place in Sharpstown. The rotation will be live streamed over the Internet in high definition video here. American artist Mary Ellen Carroll conceptualized "prototype 180" 10 years ago as a work of art that performs. It is a reconsideration of monumentality in performance, sculpture, architecture and technology. Architect Charles Renfro will be there to introduce and kick off the project.
