Falling House plays with notions of the absurd through the portrayal of a continuously changing burning building. The perception of time as a linear construct is altered as the house is first destroyed in flames and then, played backwards, the house is perceived to be constructed by the same flames that destroyed it. Fire is the catalyst for change and renewal but also becomes an integral part of the material fabric of this building.
