Beachside Lonelyhearts
2017, Long Island City, NY
For: MOMA PS1 (Unbuilt competition proposal)
Beachside Lonelyhearts is a story about an incorrectly remembered sunny afternoon, whose thought fragments are glitched together along a beach plan. Beachside lonelyhearts is a story remembered incorrectly, with thought fragments scattered over the walls, floor and ceiling in a desperate attempt to piece back together the fondest and most idyllic sense of warmth. These incorrect memories are repeated, told, retold, corrected, and reconstructed, with degrees of familiarity and differences - but each time plausible and believable in their own right. Notes, sketches and thoughts are scribbled onto the wall. Images, snapshots and visuals are pasted as postcards. This fragmented memory is in a safe place - a treasure box - where no amount of reassembly and reconstruction could disturb the fact that this afternoon existed, and none of the choices in this reality would result in any lasting consequences. This sunny afternoon is a west coast joy ride, or a terrifically beautiful nightmare. But there's no one, nothing, as a convertible roams along with a collection of scattered thoughts flapping in the wind.
