As part of the 2014 MERGE Festival in the city’s Bankside district, artist Alex Chinneck — famous for his four-story “sliding house” in Margate, Kent — built a two-story house sculpture out of 8,000 wax bricks. The festival kicked off on Sept. 18, and the edifice has been melting ever since. What once looked like a pretty, sturdy home has become a grotesque, warped version of itself. But that’s all part of the plan.
Yup. That is creepy.
