Skyhooks, 2012

Dimensions variable

In 1949, photographer Robert Sullivan, at R.M. Schindler's request, made some images when the Janson's house was still under construction. In one, Ellen Janson is standing alone on the deck against the skyline. "Skyhooks" was the nickname for her residence.

Special thanks to the Art, Design & Architecture Museum at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and especially to Melinda Gandara.
