’emergency response studio’

at: rice gallery, houston, texas, USA
from: january 29 to march 1, 2009
opening january 29 is a new architectural installation by american artist paul villinski at rice gallery in houston,
texas. villinski created ’emergency response studio’, a solar powered, mobile artist’s studio, in response to the
post katrina, new orleans disaster. working over several months he transformed a salvaged trailer into a rolling,
live/ work space that could house displaced artists. outfitted with solar panels and a wind turbine, the live/work
space is powered entirely by a 1.6-kilowatt photovoltaic solar system and is built exclusively from green,
non-toxic building materials.
