The Tenderer was created for the 2019 Joshua Treenial, an invitational exhibition held at BoxoHouse in Joshua Tree, California. The installation consisted of a series of short experimental films about adapting to life in the desert. The films were presented inside a site-responsive DIY screening hut made of felt, thrift store blankets, tarps and painted sticks. Viewers were invited to sit inside on upholstered tree stumps and watch the program on a monitor.
