The "monstosity" a cast of entirior of 193 Grove road, in Bow, Eastend London. ( side view)
"House" is a cast of the entirity of the inside of Eastend typical victorian housing. This was the odd one out, the only one remaining. It is huge, heavey and ugly in appearance which portrays the reality of her disappointment at all the previous houses that have been demolished before it.
Whiteread started by making smaller sized casts from domestic objects. These were objects such as hot-water bottles, vases and then matresses before going on to repeat the same process over and over and then on a larger scale. She progressed afterwards on to making casts of rooms and whole buildings.
