“Hole Home” was a project initiated in fall of 2013 by Isla Hansen and Jonathan Armistead. The intention behind this project was to build a miniature golf course inside of a domestic space, creating a playable mini golf game that could also be watched via a home surveillance system. Falling somewhere between game and performance, public space and private space, work of architecture and work of sculpture, Hole Home Mini golf would offer a new way for audiences to both view and playfully interact with art in the context of a residential community.
Hole Home was supported by a microgrant from the Frank-Ratchye Fund for Art @ the Frontier (FRFAF)— an endowment founded to encourage the creation of innovative artworks by the faculty, students and staff of Carnegie Mellon University. With this fund, the STUDIO seeks to develop a cache of groundbreaking projects created at CMU — works that can be described as “thinking at the edges” of the intersection of disciplines.
