Two Guys Living in a Giant Hamster Wheel
March 8th, 2014
Two men are spending some quality time living in a rather unique home – this 25-foot wooden wheel. Ward Shelley and Alex Schweder are living in this wheel as part of the In Orbit art project at The Boiler gallery in Manhattan.
All of the furniture and accommodations are fixed along its circumference. The guys need to walk in tandem to rotate the giant wheel and get to the things they need to get through the day. The pair are living in the structure right now, 24/7. Their project started on February 28 and ends on March 9, 2014. The structure will remain until April 5, 2014.
It is an interesting idea, but if you live in a house like this, you better get along with your partner. Chances are these guys are going to hate each other by the end of it. Also, I don’t want to know how they go to the bathroom.
