House of Fubb was fabricated using the Robotics Lab at The Center for New Art at William Paterson University by Cliff Baldwin.  It is currently on display through Spring 2016 at the Power Art Center, 25 Power Avenue, Wayne, NJ 07470.



The House of FUBB is an astro-viewing pavilion designed for public enjoyment and celestial observation. The artist has invented a custom typeface perfectly suited to large architectural projects. FUBB, the name that the artist has given to Exoplanet 452b is an earthlike planet discovered in the Milky Way in 1995. It exists 1400 light years away. The language of space and time come together with the House of FUBB.


Planet 452b (aka FUBB) has similarities to Earth in scale and distance from its sun. FUBB orbits its star 1400 light years away and exists in a goldilocks zone that may foster life. It was discovered in 1995 by the Kepler Telescope, a space-based instrument dedicated to discovering planets like our own. Language, discovery, time and space come together at the House of FUBB.


Cliff Baldwin is a sculptor and designer. He lives and works in Aquebogue, New York. He has exhibited in Tokyo, Cologne, Berlin, Mexico City, Los Angeles, and New York. His work is in numerous collections including The Museum of Modern Art, The Walker Art Center, The Museum of The Art Institute of Chicago, The National Gallery of Canada and The Museum of Rhode Island School of Design.
