The Fifth House and PointB is delighted to announce the exhibition The Skypod Project by artist Mark Parrish.
The Skypod itself is a collapsible light-weight tent structure capable of hanging from trees, cliff faces, telephone poles or building facades allowing for suspension over diverse terrains. This portable experience structure creates a mobile habitat for site-specific projects to evolve.
At The Fifth House we will exhibit a working prototype of the Skypod that explores the context for the piece and situates the research Mark is concurrently doing at Dreamland – a creative community, the Fifth House’s sibling organization, in the deep woods of upstate New York. Night skies, frog songs, Vista Tunnels (constructed poetics views into the wetlands and woodlands at Dreamland) will frame the work.
