James Welling in conversation

The Glass House 
October 10, 2013

In his series “Glass House,” artist James Welling uses a digital camera and color filters to experiment with new possibilities for architectural photography, capturing the luminous effects of the Glass House at different times and with changing light conditions over a four-year period (2006-2010). These atmospheric works reveal the ambiguity between the interior built space and exterior natural space evoked by Johnson's home. These pictures suggest a physical experience of space and form that is unique in architectural photography.
