The Disappearer, 2011 

site-based sculpture

Dockweiller Beach and LAX

Los Angeles, CA

The Disappearer was an excessively laborious, haphazard sculpture construction, installed at the hypothetical line between a tsunami danger zone and a safety zone near Dockweiler Beach. This “fort” found itself literally falling apart, in a constant state of entropy, its imagery borne of local infrastructure dissolving into the ethereal abandon of the sea.


A second iteration of this work involved an experimental performance of alien character who would inhabit this fort. It was enacted throughout the awkward, pedestrian-unfriendly landscaped areas of LAX airport; the documentation was compiled in an equally haphazard imovie music video.
