  • Two photographs of a beach house in ruins are displayed on separate LCD screens and sliced. The two screens are in dialogue: each displaying the house’s interior taken a few years apart, at different levels of decay. Akin to the firefighters who used the house in the 1970s to conduct drills and simulations, cutting and removing the screen’s polarizing filter film pushes the limits of its material condition. Between charred wood and the sunset. Between infinitesimal liquid crystals and the expansive space of the Internet.
