Summer Night Forever
2017, Recology

Summer Night Forever was created during a four month residency at the San Francisco dump, also known as Recology. The installation was created entirely from materials scavenged from the waste stream and included lamps, stereos, a VCR, a white noise machine, and a baby monitor. These objects were taken apart and rearranged to create new functional sculptures that then played sound also culled from the trash. The sounds created a strange chorus soundtrack for the installation and included the 'Summer Night' track on the white noise machine, a Joy Division mix tape, a Songs of the Humpback Whale CD, and a Titanic VHS tape.
