7. test-living

Is it really possible to live in a 9 sqm mobile house? How does the empty and minimalist space effect our domestic behaviour? Answering these questions is Luise Louè, a Munich based artist which took part in the test-living programme hosted inside aVOID Tiny House. Luise is actually designing her own tiny house “TiTo” which will also function as a small itinerary museum. How the night spent in aVOID will influence her design?

“I entered the aVOID Tiny house of 9 sqm…and left it…one week later. What? Yes! Believe it or not: This was my wish when I had slept there for one night. I’m the kind of person who does five projects at one time; in my home I have stack of papers “Things to do”, and files of projects everywhere. But for creativity and recreation I need – a void – in the proper sense of the word: nothing to do, no plans, ennui, loneliness but opportunity to connect to the outside. So retreats are my base of being, working, health. I basically long for them all the time. So this week within “a void”, I would meditate, watch outside the window front for hours, eat good food, read in books, do yoga, work on my laptop, watch outside again, have a chat with some interesting people passing by, invite somebody, sleep. Nothing more. Marvelous.” –  Luise Louè
