“…while many architects through their time have sought a ‘true house’ or a ‘true architecture’, their truth was something of the past and not so true in the present […] here architecture is a child of the sea, arose from its substance…” — Gio Ponti
At the age of 32, I finally ran away from home. Dramatically, I left with only my cat and copies of all the still and motion images taken by my father (these dating until the mid 1990s when he then passed his camera down to me). And while I unpacked the baggage of this surreal house coincidentally, back home, renovations were in order… Here, an architectural threnody is composed through a various "true stories" and the inherent struggle between the metaphysical and material.
What time is it? No time to look back...

Rhayne Vermette is an artist from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Having studied architecture, Rhayne is severely interested in images and animation which confront architectural conventions. Her practice is rooted in notions of decadence and the indeterminate, and favours experimental forms. Her 16mm films negotiate documentary form, often merging the insipid within the surreal. Rhayne has had her films screened across the globe, including the Chicago Underground Film Festival, Images Film Festival, the European Media Arts Festival, and on and on.
