Flock House Living System Pods

In May 2012, the Flock House Project, a group of self-contained ecosystems migrating around New York City’s five boroughs, premiered at the Clocktower Gallery. It comprised a group of sculptural microspheres that imagine and begin to construct an open framework where created environments are adaptable, collapsible, and modular. Flock House microspheres can be built in, transported to, and survive in and among urban centers along three planes of living (subterranean, ground, and sky).

Built collaboratively upon reclaimed, recycled, redesigned, and rethought materials, Flock House microspheres promote wider adoption of rainwater capture, inner-city agriculture, and solar and human-powered energy technologies. During Mattingly's residency at Clocktower Gallery, visitors were allowed to experience these pods through solitary time living-system experiments and radio interviews.

Mary Mattingly's Flock House Performances

Appearing at the Clocktower Gallery, the Flock House Project is a group of self-contained ecosystems migrating around New York City’s five boroughs. The project consists of a group of sculptural microspheres in an effort to move toward an open shelter framework where created environments are adaptable, collapsible, and modular. Flock House microspheres can be built in, transported to, and survive in and among urban centers along three planes of living (subterranean, ground, and sky). Performances by Greenpot Bluepot, DW-DK and sound by Maria Chavez. Natalie Rose LeBrecht, who released her first albums under the name Greenpot Bluepot, lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Devoted to studies in sound, texture and emotion, LeBrecht creates an intriguing sphere of her own in her artwork, and somehow preserves a fantastic sense of humour in the process. She is also known for an unsettlingly schizophrenic voice that morphs into different personalities within each song, invading the listener’s senses and illusions.
