The Bus Home

The “Bus Home” is a shelter. Created by Dennis Oppenheim’s and featured in Time Magazine. The Bus Home was erected just south of Santa Barbara in the community of Ventura, California in 2002. Time Magazine called the Bus Home, ” A sculptural roller coaster!” The artist shares that, “The Bus Home is a shelter.  The work depicts the metamorphosis of a bus becoming a house.  This frozen animation of one image into another takes the form of looping corkscrew entering the ground, and coming up again.  It slowly transforms a bus to a house.  For the tired and often alienated traveler the experience of waiting to be intervened by the realization that the transaction will be complete. The passenger will arrive at their destination. They will arrive home!”
