Sunset Park studio, Brooklyn: Private Islands project research
The starting point for this body of work is internet research resulting in hundreds of images of private islands for sale (privateislandsonline.com) and Craigslist hot tubs (for free). Both image sets were indexed, printed and distilled into diptychs that pair a luxury island ‘mound’ with an ‘inverted island’ counterpart based on formal and spatial properties. The pairings propose not only a type of imagined sculptural union, but a political and social one as well.
