Jakub Szczesny of Polish architecture collective Centrala recently designed what will be the narrowest house in Warsaw (rendering at right). The slim steel frame will be squeezed between two existing buildings, and the dwelling-cum-art installation will feature remote-control stairs, yacht-style water and sewage systems, as well as the challenge of navigating a space that, at its narrowest, spans a mere 28 inches. The inspiration for this miniature marvel? Israeli writer and filmmaker Etgar Keret, an expert at crafting compact narratives that pack an outsized punch. In anticipation of his new story collection (out in April), FSG Originals and BOMB Magazine, have launched a contest that invites readers, artists, and designers to draw inspiration from the written work of Keret to create visual art of their own. The “Something out of Something” contest, which takes its name from a passage in the title story of the forthcoming book, is open for entries through March 1, 2012. The winning piece—as determined by Keret along with judges from FSG and Bomb—will be featured in a Keret story or film. Full details, as well as submissions, can be viewed on the contest’s Tumblr.
