The home of the future might constantly adapt to its residents

Philip Beesley featured in CLOT magazine

Epiphyte Chamber, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul, 2013

From the Buddhist concept of completeness in Nirvana to James Hilton’s Shangri La, a utopian place of perfection, to the biblical depiction of heaven, to Dante’s aethereal and so on, man has always strived to find the sublime beauty. 

Philip Beesley describes himself as a sculptor who is dedicated to building prototypes for the future. But I would say he is one of the last dreamers and a maker of sublime worlds – worlds that are right here, on earth, accessible to anyone.
