# Gianni Pettena's clay house

The clay house is the second installation created by Gianni Pettena and his students from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City (1972). First one was the tumbleweeds catcher I already post one month ago and this second one simply consists in covering the entire exterior surface of a very trivial house with clay. The interesting process here happens between the time clay is applied on the surface and the time it actually dries out. During this moment, the material was "alive", retracting itself, creating cracks and being explored by insect.
