Nomadic Domiciles

Ted Lott's avatar Ted Lott

America is one of the most mobile countries in the world. The average American moves more than 11 times in their life, more than 10% of Americans move every year. We are a country constantly moving, constantly renewing. Nomadic Domiciles is a grouping of three sculptures that each depict a house frame atop a set of four long curved legs. Each set of legs is unique, giving them individual character, while retaining their identity as a group, or herd, of homes. The legs are constructed of ductile cast iron, and are based on the design of a table, with legs and aprons, reflecting the history of furniture-making in Grand Rapids. The house frames are cast brass, and have a rich green patina, which will continue to mature as the sculptures weather. This work celebrates the vitality of America, as well as the history of the Grand Rapids area, and its energy as a growing cultural and economic center of both Michigan and the Midwest.
