House Gymnastics recently won a Third Place Gallery award in net.art. This is a nice re-appropriation of domestic space and mixes a bit of carnival-esque moves into the equation. Here’s a pic of the “Elevated Dog Stretch”, “the classic yoga move elevated to a high position (this move could be interpreted as an inverted bridge, but the legs must be straight and parallel to the floor)”. Sign up, become a member, and submit your best “moves” – the ones with the highest ratings rise to the top of the lot. This reminds me of the Parsons project “The Submoves”, which was done a year later, but also looks at acting out body displacements in the NYC subways. Also the DoFly is a nice hack of moving public transportation that allows a passenger to experience the G-forces of their local bus ride to work.
