Do you need to hide? Do you need to hide from the ex, your banker, a debt collector, or an unwanted visit? Have a plan….lol
I thought this persons art project was really fun… a great place for your average recluse to escape the pressures of the world.

Out of the closet

September 4, 2008 – 1:00 am

Why does the humble wardrobe have so much appeal as a refuge, an escape to a different world even. From children’s stories like The Chronicles of Narnia or The Indian in the Cupboard, to farces and cartoons where everything from lovers to dead mothers are hidden in them, somehow wardrobes seem to be hotbeds of activity.
And it’s not all fictional. There was the story a few years back about the woman whose lover lived in the wardrobe, emerging one day to kill her husband and then in May this year there was the story of the Japanese man who found a homeless woman had moved into a closet in his house.

Perhaps our tendency to treat the wardrobe as a miniaturised house is an archetypal fantasy of having a nice safe nest, a fantasy that also plays out in cubby houses, tree houses, tiny buildings and caravans, Japanese tea houses even. It’s a sort of fantasy we fall into easily



and maybe that’s why Sydney artist Adam Norton‘s recent exhibition at Gallery9 was so appealing. His wardrobe, adaptively reused as a sort of inner space capsule had all the necessities for a long term hide away from the world.




All bodily functions are catered for, there is storage for food and water, as well as cooking and washing facilities.




There is even a periscope so that you can check if the coast is clear before getting out and stretching your legs.
