A Five Pound Bass

This is a photograph that I came across at the goodwill store in south Florida. Rumor holds, this is the house that Christo lived in while he was visualising the Surround Island project for Biscayne Bay, Greater Miami, in 1982. This is the house he rented during the design process of the wraping for the Whitney Museum, NYC. These ideas came to him while living in this location. He rented this house sometime between 1966 and 1969.


  1. You come up with this shit at 6 o'clock in the morning?

    I hate laughing at 6 a.m., especially with coffee up my nose.

    OK, it's damned clever...wish I had thought of it...assholeo.

  2. I met him once...doesn't surprise me that he had lived in a "house" like this. Odd duck.

  3. What JJ said only 9:00 at night and a martini.

  4. That's the most palatial wendy house I've ever seen.
