'The Fragmented Meandering House' is an artistic house installation carried out by designer Michael Jantzen. This installation is made for a public park and consists of a fragmented house that travels along a track. Visitors can come by and move the fragments and further explore the house as a metaphor and symbol.

In this case, it's divided into four sections embedded on a concrete path that travels in different directions around the base. This installation explores the house as an abstract object and juxtaposes its image with other familiar objects.

The image of the house can be altered by anyone if they choose and by doing so the idea of the house is further interrogated and interrupted. It's interesting to see how the house gets pulled apart and put back together.
