October 2016

Poster triptych reflecting the degrees of isolationthat can be experienced at Cherry Beach, from positive to negative isolation,and what those stages feel like.

Detachment, represents relaxation at the beach (positive isolation, self-satisfaction), it is covered by sand, which viewer must remove to view the poster.

Seclusion, Poster 2 represents the history of cruising at the beach and is covered by fabric, emulating clothing, which will be unzipped by viewer as a way of undressing the poster. 

Segregation, Poster 3 represents the history of police brutality at the beach, and it is covered in a plaster material which has to be broken to reveal the poster. This represents breaking bones and violence perpetrated by the police.
