Vanishing House Catalogue


Because something is happening here but you don’t know what it is. Do you, Mr Jones?

ABOUT VHC online

According to Quentin Crisp [ref]  All one needs in this world is a lifestyle of one’s own.  Since everyone has an individuality,  "All you have to do is to learn how to present it.  Because you’ve nothing else to give the world which no one else can give except yourself."

Vanishing House Catalogue (VHC) online is a personal and therapeutic work of expeditionary art & design.

In 2014, VHC's imaginary lawyer, Ygor Bedmitz listed this entire catalogue as something called 'outsider art with conceptual designs after lunch.'

In conceptual art [according to Sol LeWitt's article published in Artforum in June 1967] the composition's idea is its most important aspect: The idea becomes a machine that makes the art.

And so this idea was sent on a journey, evolving through each interaction.  And whilst on this journey (through places of inspiring art & science, and silent contemplation, meditation & prayer) the principal areas of concern for VHC have been:

our physical, social, and spiritual wellbeing;

the so-called building of a cathedral;

the abandoned writing of a novel;

and almost every Witch Star Project procedure;

as well as our administration's disposal of VHC and all its contents.
