"Reflectance" is a solo exhibition of new work by Jan Tichy that considers how early solar developments in architecture inform the present, while also addressing limitations of the contemporary environmental “green” movement. Inspiration for Tichy’s new project is the House of Tomorrow, a visionary design for a modernized home created by architect George Fred Keck, that was presented at the 1933 World’s Fair in Chicago. It was the first glass house in America, and featured innovative designs to address efficiency issues. George Fred Keck is recognized as the first “solar architect” for this project. In the exhibition, Tichy designs and builds two motorized mobiles that run on solar power generated from the windows in Elmhurst Art Museum’s McCormick House. The project presents a new interpretation of the House of Tomorrow, pointing to engineering and efficiency concerns.
