12x12 is a model display of a sustainably-built, off-grid tiny house. The house is a simple modular space with a rainwater-collecting butterfly roof, and wall panels inscribed with text and information from William Powers’ book “12x12” which details his experience living in the structure. These panels will vary and be movable, allowing the structure to grow and evolve as various artists and invited groups take up short-term residence.
