An extended account of the experience of working with Avery Green has just been published as a book chapter titled ‘A Vital, Architectural Materialism; a House-person’s Escape from the Anthropocentric’, in Architectural Materialisms: Nonhuman Creativity, Maria Voyatsaki (ed), Edinburgh University Press. 2018.

The essay explores the idea of ‘person’ and ‘personality’ and how this might work in the case of house, such as Avery Green. It explores the dangers of anthropomorphism and how to avoid those dangers, the indispensable involvement of anthropomorphism in approaching a house as a person, and how this all works against anthropocentrism.

There are accounts of the process of renovating and extending, and how this became a way to tap into a deep temporal/geological history in which Avery Green remains implicated.

Avery & Jane taking part in Workaround

The Jane Approach  will be developed and further explored with a group of talented co-explorers in a online broadcast and a program of live events, called WORKAROUND, going to air on Saturday July 28, between 12 and 5pm. Just come along, and/or REGISTER HERE.

Co-creators include: Annie Bolitho, Fiona Harrisson, Jondi Keane, Gina Moore, Francesca Mountfort, Peta Murray, Caitlyn Parry and Mattie Sempert.

Avery Green's transformation was the first 'event' through which The Jane Approach was developed – as a sister project.  Avery Green will be discussed during STORY-TIME, between 12.45 and 2.15 (see schedule in flyer below), alongside a series of four stories about different houses/places. 

There will be live drawing, making, cello playing, readings, video, holoLens clay moulding, digital animating...

exhibition plan in-the-making

Very excited to announce that Avery Green and her friends are developing an exhibition of works that will be open to the public for a short period of three days between June 17th and June 19th. This will involve an exposition of artefacts that celebrate and bear witness to the intertwinements that constitute a house-person, including works produced by those creative individuals who have lived with her.
