S.S.s. live video feed, cruise ships, nautical flagpole, customised beach towels. 2014.
Commissioned for Unsettled Landscapes, SITE Santa Fe Biennial.
A live video feed was streamed to the gallery space in Santa Fe from the touristic port of Nassau, Bahamas showing the daily assembly of cruise ships. On a nautical flagpole outside the gallery this presence was marked by the raising and lowering of customized beach towels, each representing one of the 40 ships that visit the port.
"...the artist's live streaming of cruise liners' arrivals and departures transforms this commonplace event to generate a critical awareness."
