Slumgullion (The Venerate Outpost) by Karl Unnasch at Philbrook

Philbrook Cabin
Have you ever seen a cabin shingled in tshirts? Neither have I until now. 

I suscribe to Philbrook Museum‘s instagram feed and for weeks they have been posting images of a new “Installation” in the gardens at Philbrook of a 19th century cabin shingled with plasticized clothes and a fireplace made out of books. So I have been muttering to myself this whole time, “What are they up to now??? a cabin shingled with t shirts???” Them crazy artist types at it again.?

Have I ever told you that I love stained glass? Well I do.

So I ventured over there last week. We have a family membership thanks to Nana, the world’s greatest MIL. So I can check on those artist types whenever I want.

Genius move, turning the page side out on the books. Plus, just so you know, that it is a fake fire.

And yep, it is true. Philbrook has built a cabin out in the back 40 of their acreage and it has plastisized tshirts for shingles on the roof, and chinking in the logs, along with some LED lights. And a fireplace made out of books.

I love the impression of light coming through the walls.

And they have some beautiful stained glass windows and some great many lights in the ceiling made out of found glass. 
And you know  what it all works. It was a dark, overcast day outside but inside it was bright and sunny and just plain wonderful. My iphone pics do not do it justice. It was a very bright happy place. Light was coming  in everywhere but the floor!!

The artist behind all this is Karl Unnasch, who specializes in stained glass and all things considered with light. 

This whole”Installation” thing is something new to me and it seems that Philbrook is doing more of these. They seem to be temporary and not meant to last forever and you know somehow it works for me. So I guess that I approve of this cabin and what the artist types are up to.

This installation is called “Slumgullion (The Venerate Outpost)” If you know what that means, please let us know. Or at least let me know since everybody but me seems to think it makes perfect sense.

I love the soft colors filtering through the plastisized tshirts and the found glass lights in the ceiling.

Check out สล็อตออนไลน์ มือถือPhilbrook’s web site.? ?They got all sorts of info on hours and what they are doing, which is considerable. You know they have two sites now, right?

    So clever. Perhaps not practical to live in, but that’s not the point, right? Thanks for sharing this radiant piece of creativity.

    I absolutely love that especially the fireplace. I want that in my backyard! I’m going to have a she shed built next spring to use as my studio. I might use some of these ideas but probably not the t-shirts as shingles.

    I love this cabin and the fireplace is just “Out of bounds”. There is a new restaurant here and part of one wall is covered in old cassette tapes. It is delightful. Have a blessed week.

    I love the colored light. Also like stained glass and used to practice the craft. I hope the plasticized roofing doesn’t leak or the awesome fireplace might get soggy.

    Wow, what an awesome place to visit. I love the stained glass and the book fireplace. The various colored glass lamps are lovely to. So creative. Great post and photos. Enjoy your day, have a great new week!
