About this project

INVISIBLE HOUSE architectural rendering sited on the coast of California
INVISIBLE HOUSE architectural rendering sited on the coast of California

INVISIBLE HOUSE is mirrored mobile textile printing studio or more simply put; a tiny house studio on wheels.  It is completely mirrored on the exterior, appearing as a cubic form reflecting its surrounding environment.  This feature brings natural camouflage to the structure making it seem to visually merge into the landscape and disappear. Within the walls of this gleaming mini architectural gem, there resides a seamlessly designed textile screen printing studio!  

INVISIBLE HOUSE is an off grid hybrid combination of a mid-seventies Airstream land yacht camper and a scaled down Japanese kimono fabric making studio.  It is complete with a custom (patent pending ) extendable print table that unfolds into the outside when the rolling glass wall loading door is open.  This allows for indoor/outdoor art making.  Perfect for demonstrating printing and for small classes and workshops.

INVISIBLE HOUSE plans to travel up & down the coast of California over the next two years allowing the perfect opportunities for printing and photographing the gorgeous locations reflected in its surfaces, especially as inspiration for a fresh new batch of wallpaper designs!

 Short stops at known cultural institutions along the coast are setting up to host the INVISIBLE HOUSE for workshops like; native botannical printing with natural inks workshops, T-Shirt & Apparel printing, and repeat yardage designing.

The INVISIBLE HOUSE studio project has been a dream of mine since my visit to the west coast.  Ironically, I have been building up over nearly 2 decades with bucket loads of practice printing and setting up studios here, there, and everywhere. More than 15,000 people have benefitted from learning this skill and art practice from workshops and classes. 

Under the direction of local master tiny house builder, the INVISIBLE HOUSE will be built in Napa commencing with the structural framing in early March. Plan is to have it completely built out by mid-April with details and interior finishing completed by mid-May for the first workshop at the end of that month.  Goal is to have it start rolling along the coast beginning of June!

Risks and challenges

Life is a risk and Love is a risk. That is what this is Life Love and/or Love Life. There you have it.

I will be working under the advisement of a Master Carpenter and professional tiny house builder and with two local builders. Definitely wanting and accepting helpers in Napa on build days. We can and will build this tiny house studio together with your financial support via reward acquisition and direct donations. Build days will be announced on the candycoated.org blog.
