Comprised of furniture and décor from the 1970s and 1980s, Luis Jacob’s Habitat is a series of tableaux that is at once a commentary on the aesthetics of design and an interactive space intended for viewer inhabitation and use. In this artist’s talk, Jacob discusses Habitat within the framework of the philosophical and cultural possibilities of social interaction and the evolution of his past artistic practice. The exhibition dates are November 5, 2005 to February 26, 2006.
