It's easy to turn clothing inside out, but doing so to a house requires heavy equipment. That's what artist Martin Papcún did to an abandoned house in Cleveland. Fritzie Brown, director of an arts organization, describes it:
Papcún again gained access to an abandoned Cleveland house and then convinced a building contractor, many volunteers, and city officials to allow him to alter the structure so that all of the interior walls were physically on the exterior of the house. Severed floor joists, and interior heating and other structures become erratic ornamental elements and, in combination with occasional bright blue interior paint, make the two-story structure a head-turning surprise in the lower-middle class neighborhood.
