Charles and Ray Eames with John Entenza
The Sculptured House was built by US architect Charles Deaton in 1963 in the Genesee Mountain, Jefferson County, Colorado. Deaton never lived in the 7,000 sq. ft. home because he lacked the funds to complete the construction. It went largely unfinished and was vacant for thirty years until software entrepreneur John Huggins purchased the house in 1999. He built a large addition designed by Deaton before the architect’s death in 1996, and commissioned Deaton’s daughter Charlee to design the interior, completed in 2003. It is also known as The Sleeper House because it was featured in the 1973 Woody Allen film “Sleeper.”

Mid-Century Diamond Front Storage by American of Martinsville
From a roll of film I found buried in the ground at the house of an old man who had just died.
Emma Kisiel holds a bachelor of fine arts with an emphasis in photography from the University of Colorado Denver. “At Rest” is a photographic series depicting roadkill on American highways and addressing our human fear of confronting death and viewing the dead. Kisiel’s images draw attention to the fact that, while man has a vast impact on animal and natural life, dominant American religions insist that animals do not have a place in Heaven and are, therefore, of little value in our society. To cause the viewer to feel struck by this truth, Kisiel photographs memorials she builds surrounding roadkill at the location at which its life was taken. “At Rest” expresses the sacredness to the bodies of animals accidentally hit by vehicles while crossing the road.
