Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin in Spring Green, WI
The jewel of the tour -- the Taliesin residence (actually built for his mistress, Mamah Borthwick Cheney) -- is an absolutely awesome building. Every detail oozes function; every line, every corner, every brick and every stone has a reason to be where it is. From Wright's personal drafting area, to the living room, to the guest bedroom and to his personal bedroom, the house is a study in architectural achievement. Taliesin was not only a home to Wright, it was a place in which he could constantly experiment, both with the building and with the land. He was always changing something...

FOR EVERMOR: I 1st discovered House on the Rock when I was touring in 1992 with the 'Official' Project & staying at Dreamtime Village & our host mIEKAL aND told us about it. I was astounded. I was passing through again in 1998 on tour with etta cetera & we stopped at Dreamtime again & I shot filmstrip footage at House on the Rock & at the sculpture park of Dr Evermor & Lady Eleanor's where what was once the world's largest scrap metal sculture, THE FOREVERTRON, was placed. I shot filmstrips there & audio recorded an interview with Dr Evermor. I found them both to be extraordinarily warm people & I felt a deep friendliness toward them that I still feel to this day. 13 years later I returned & shot mini-dv footage at House on the Rock — making sure to get footage of the Organ Room, which Dr Evermor had been the main man behind. Evermor's genius as a scrap metal sculptor is evident both in the Organ Room's layout & in his most famous sculpture, the Forevertron — at his art park. I hope that this extremely close-to-no-budget movie adequately represents the spirit of Evermor's truly fantastic imagination, consumate sculpting skills, & wry sense of humor. Such extraordinary people deserve my total respect.
