Habitat for Artists

This is an interesting project run by Simon Draper. It’s a funky little tiny house artist community. You can read the whole story on Simon’s website. Here’s a short quote that summarizes the project:

Draper,who has long been working with concepts regarding habitat/shelter in his own art practice will provide each artist with a basic 6 ft. by 6 ft. shed, to be considered as an artist’s habitat/workspace for the duration of the art fair. The artist will inhabit this simple and temporary structure and use the space to create art works or turn the structure into an artwork prior to and during the time of the fair.

Tiny House Eden

This is a great story about several homeless advocacy groups getting together to create a tiny house village for the homeless in Sacramento, California. Bathroom and kitchen facilities will be centralized but people will have their own tiny houses to sleep in at night. This seems like a great step in the right direction. I really hope projects like this are successful and set a precedent for more communities like this.
